The ADEA protects older workers from employment discrimination

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) is a federal law that prohibits discrimination against a worker for reasons of age. It protects all workers over 40 from employment discrimination due to age. Such illegal discrimination is prohibited with respect to hiring, firing, promotion, layoff, compensation and any other term, condition or privilege of employment. In California, the ADEA exists alongside state laws that also provide protection from age discrimination to workers.

Agencies and restaurants accused of employment discrimination

It may not be widely known that many immigrants in California and other states are being shoveled into jobs where they do the unsavory work that Americans often will not do. For the privilege, the man or woman receive an hourly wage rate that is far less than minimum wage. Many of them may find that they have a claim for employment discrimination against the employer for treating them differently than similarly situated Caucasians.  

Report compares California's restaurant industry pay to Jim Crow

An academic report released in October says that California’s restaurant industry is so discriminatory against female and minority workers that it resembles the worst days of racial segregation in the American South. Based on the title alone, which reads in part, “Ending Jim Crow in America’s Restaurants,” the report certainly does not pull any punches.
