Lawsuits claim older workers blocked from seeing online job ads

Most job seekers in New York turn to the internet, but the demographic targeting enabled by online advertisers appears to be preventing older job candidates from viewing job opportunities. Lawsuits on behalf of people who experienced age discrimination have begun to hit the court system. These cases could establish whether age filtering on job advertisements represents illegal conduct.

How workers can respond to gender discrimination

New York workers often face gender bias and discrimination on a daily basis. For instance, failing to make eye contact with female colleagues while doing so for male colleagues is one example of potential discrimination. While most people don't intend to treat their colleagues differently based on their gender, it can still have an impact on how people perceive their role at work.

Survey seeks employee input regarding age discrimination

The AARP recently conducted a survey of those over the age of 45 to gauge their feelings about age discrimination at work. Of those in New York and elsewhere who responded, 61 percent said that they had experienced age discrimination or seen others experience it. Furthermore, 38 percent said that they believed the practice to be very common. However, research does show that the workforce participation rate for older Americans is higher than it was before the Great Recession.

Employee sues retailer for discrimination

People in Long Island who are subject to discrimination on the basis of race at work might be able to file a lawsuit against their company. This was the case for an employee of the sports merchandise retailer Fanatics based in Jacksonville, Florida. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has filed a lawsuit on the man's behalf.
