NO PASSING FAD
Social media and the
case of age discrimination
We will not be the first to say this, but we’ll say it anyway. Social Media is not a passing fad. Policies and laws involving social media are constantly evolving. When looking for job candidates, does using social media advertisements targeted to young applicants raise age discrimination concerns? The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) makes it illegal to discriminate against workers over the age of 40 when advertising, recruiting and hiring. A provision of the ADEA involving job postings generally makes it unlawful to “print or publish” notices or advertisements “indicating any preference, limitation, specification or discrimination, based on age.” Age discrimination claims involving the ADEA have been rising steadily.
