The average office environment now houses up to four generations under one roof. Efforts to address challenges in the multi-generational workforce may inadvertently rely on age-based sterotypes, or alienate older workers, leading to increases in dissatisfaction and age discrimination claims. Unlike other forms of social bias, some forms of ageism are socially acceptable, making preventing and overcoming it all the more challenging. 
 
Key Learning Objectives


The unique challenges presented by multi-generational workplaces
How legitimate business initiatives may inadvertently rely on age-related stereotypes
Recent caselaw regarding:

recruitment and hiring
retirement and succession planning, and
"me too" evidence in age discrimination cases

Practical tips and takeaways
