You've probably heard the saying, "You can't teach an old dog new tricks." Unfortunately, this is an attitude that prevails at many workplaces: older employees are often undervalued.

Any workplace with more than 20 employees must be ADEA-compliant. In this course, we'll discuss what exactly is covered under the law, from job ads to benefits to retirement.
We'll also talk about ADEA waivers and their specific requirements.
