Our mission is to end workplace discrimination and protect your rights. Hiscox, a leading business insurance company, released its Ageism in Workplace Study outlining startling facts and figures for 2019. The biggest takeaway is the number of age-related discrimination charges filed has doubled from 1990 to 2017. This is seen through 44% of employees reporting that they or someone they know have experienced age discrimination in the workplace. It’s projected that by 2024, workers age 55 and above will represent over 25% of the nation’s workforce increasing the chance that age discrimination will continue to persist. Let’s hold big corporations accountable now so we can set an example for tomorrow.
