In 2009 (the latest year for which data are available), nearly 40 million Americans are over age 65, which is about one in every eight Americans (U.S. Administration on Aging, n.d.). Whether for monetary or social reasons, many individuals continue working after age 65. There are several federal employment laws that protect these older workers from discrimination. These include the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Older Americans Act of 1965 (OAA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) of 1967, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), which requires employers to provide accommodations for older workers with disabilities.
The National Business & Disability Council (NBDC) at The Viscardi Center is pleased to announce that it is hosting an online workshop on aging in the workplace. The workshop, Our Aging Employees: How to Retain and Keep Them Productive, is scheduled for Wednesday, May 25, 2016. Because there is a limited capacity for this event, we recommend advanced registration. Click on the link below to register online and reserve your seat.
