As the general population has aged and people stay in the workforce longer, age-based claims of discrimination have significantly increased and impact many employers. These claims may be based on the Age Discrimination in Employment Act or Title VII, or they may be bundled with a retaliation claim. As employers in recent years have reacted either to economic adversity or tried to become more productive, downsizing and changes to retirement plans have also given rise to a spike in disparate impact claims. Like pattern-and-practice claims, disparate impact claims can be difficult to defend. This program provides counsel to employers a wide-ranging discussion of significant developments in age discrimination case law, regulatory and enforcement developments, and best practices to avoid liability.

• Age discrimination developments under the ADEA and Title VII
• Pattern-and-practice discrimination in the workplace
• Developments related to disparate impact claims based on age
• Age discrimination claims arising from layoffs and other downsizing
• Intersection of age-based and retaliation-based claims
• Affirmative defense developments, including “reasonable factor other than age”
• Developments related to recruiting, hiring, and retaining older workers
• Best practices to avoid age discrimination claims

Speaker: Kelly Bunting is a partner in the Philadelphia office of Greenburg Traurig LLP, where she litigates class and collective actions involving claims under federal and state law for wage and hour violations, misclassification, overtime, minimum wage issues, and off-the-clock work. She also defends both state and federal employment claims involving pregnancy, gender, age, disability, race, national origin, and religious discrimination and harassment.
