AARP Policy & Research

Reassessing the Age Discrimination in Employment Act
Research Report
David Neumark, Department of Economics, University of California at Irvine
June 2008
[full-text, 55 pages]

This AARP Public Policy Institute report by David Neumark of the University of California at Irvine reviews the existing research on age discrimination in employment and assesses how successful the ADEA has been in achieving its goals, along with how well it might support the continued employment of older adults in the future. Given that ADEA enforcement has tended to focus on terminations, which typically arise in cases of layoffs or "reductions-in-force," the ADEA's impact in recent years has been more on the continued employment of those under age 65. If age discrimination plays any role in suppressing the employment of those older than age 65, then figuring out how the ADEA can contribute to rooting out discrimination against these older individuals becomes of prime policy importance.
