Discrimination against older workers is coming up more and more in court. Is your HR team
In July 2012 Top Line Roofing laid off two of its oldest journeymen, Paul Price, 53 and a colleague who was in his 60s, claiming there was a shortage of work. Three months earlier the company had hired a journeyman in his 40s and two young journeymen apprentices who were not laid off. While the older colleague was called back to work several months later, Price was not.
