Age discrimination: older workers keeping up with new technology

Residents in Minnesota understand the importance of having a career. Some workers have been at the same job for decades and do not have the desire to change their career path until they hit retirement age. Although it is fairly common for employees to remain with the same company or within the same field during their entire working life, some older workers fear that they will become outdated.

Tips for proving age discrimination

It's no secret that America's population is aging. Every year, baby boomers are getting closer and closer to retirement age. As these employees age, some employers may be tempted to get rid of older employee through forced retirement or some other means. However, employment laws protect Minnesota seniors from discrimination based on their age. Under these laws, employers cannot use an employee's age as a factor in that employee's dismissal.

A former agent for insurance giant Allstate has filed suit against his former employer, arguing that it violated Minnesota law when it fired him for not fulfilling a life insurance quota. The Minnesota Department of Commerce has already fined the company in relation to the man's firing.
