Many reasons are given by employers for actions taken against older people, and their actions are often illegal. For instance:
- Is your company downsizing? Older people often make more money than their younger colleagues, and age discrimination is a common way to trim the budget.
- Are you older and ill, or do you have an ill family member? Employers sometimes see older people who are ill or who have ill family members as "unreliable" or "disloyal" employees who drive up company medical expenses.
Often, an employer's decision is based on age bias: shifting an older employee to an unfavorable schedule, removing responsibilities, voicing excessive criticism or suddenly drafting poor performance reviews.
