THE EQUAL OPPORTUNITY DISCRIMINATION AND HARASSMENT QUIZ
The correct response to Question #4 is : FALSE
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) of 1967 is the federal law that prohibits employment discrimination against employees aged 40 and older.
A number of circumstances can compromise your ability to take an employment action, like termination, or other discipline, against an employee over age 40 for poor performance. For instance, evidence indicating that you've applied tougher performance standards to older workers than younger workers would cast doubt on your stated purpose for the employment action. The failure to follow progressive discipline procedures, eleventh-hour attempts to justify termination, and comments against older workers can indicate that bias may have illegally influenced the employment decision.
