New York,  NY 10017

In this timely briefing, we will provide the in-depth legal information and practical guidance employers need to prevent and successfully defend an age bias class action, including:

  • The 12 legal and economic "realities" that make age discrimination claims an increasingly costly threat;
  • The unique characteristics of a class action brought under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) — it is very different from a Title VII sex or race-based class action
  • The elements of an age discrimination class action based on state law, as well as a hybrid federal/state-based class action;
  • An employer's obligations under the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA) — the lesser known but equally perilous age-related class action threat; and
  • Specific guidelines on how to plan and implement a RIF that maximizes an employers chances of prevailing in an ADEA or OWBPA class action, including the role of adverse impact analyses and the components of a valid OWBPA waiver of claims.
