Can A Job Rejection Be Age Discrimination?

By Donna Ballman, Next Avenue Contributor 

If you’re an over-40 job hunter and not getting offers, you may be wondering if you’re being turned down due to your age. And, if so, whether that’s against the 50-year-old law, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. One pending class-action suit against Pricewaterhouse Coopers and another against R.J. Reynolds Tobacco (that the Supreme Court may soon hear) make this concern especially timely.
