(West Palm Beach, Florida) July 16, 2019
Mark Shalloway—President of West Palm Beach elder law firm, Shalloway & Shalloway—is pleased to announce his most recent newsletter. Shalloway and his staff regularly post newsletters to their website in order to keep past, present, and future clients up to date with changes in the world surrounding elder law.
This newsletter discusses the Age Discrimination and Employment Act (ADEA), a law put into place that prevents employers from discriminating against employees and future hires on the basis of age. This means that employers are unable to include age limits, reduce benefits for older employees, or force employees to take an early retirement. There is only one exception to the rule—bona fide occupational qualifications (BFOQ). These exceptions are far and few between, and quite difficult to provide sound enough proof that allows them to avoid the law. To learn more about what these exceptions might be, read the newsletter.
“The elder community has a vast wealth of knowledge that makes them perfect for most work environments,” Julie Rehberg of Omaha, Nebraska says. “The only time discrimination against an employee based on age may be warranted is if it poses a genuine health concern.”
Mark Shalloway is dedicated to the preservation of the rights of our elderly community, and treats clients with the dignity and respect they deserve. He is fully aware how trying the golden years of our lives can be on loved ones when it comes to planning wills and estates, so Shalloway and his staff do what they can to lessen that load.
