Do older employees face discrimination in the workplace? A new study says yes. The study by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco found that older workers in the United States were discriminated against in the workplace as well as during interviews even though there are laws designed to prevent age discrimination.
The researchers said that older workers may have been discriminated against during the recession because of their age. Companies that laid off workers may have hidden their discrimination against older workers during the recession because they were laying off so many workers.
