LIVELINES: LEGAL ISSUES

Believe it, or not, job seekers are reporting age discrimination beginning as early as their mid-thirties. So what's going on here?

Attorney Grace Daniel was our guest this morning.

She discussed the following issues..

•Workers over 45 are unemployed longer than younger workers.

•By 2018, the number of employees over 55 will reach 39 million, compared to 27 million in 2008.

•More older workers are considering postponing retirement because of the down economy.

•Research has found no relationship between age and job performance.
