Lawyers Olson and Grant Give Advice Regarding Age Discrimination

Attorneys Bekki Grant and Courtney Olson recently gave a presentation to the Southwest Area Human Resources Association (SAHRA) on the issue of age discrimination in the workplace. The Southwest Area Human Resources Association is an affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). The Society for Human Resource Management is the world’s largest association devoted to human resource management.

Attorneys Grant and Olson’s presentation covered Federal and State regulations on age discrimination, including the Age Discrimination in Employment act of 1967 and the North Dakota Human Rights Act. They also touched on safeguarding your employment practices from age discrimination by adopting protective policies, impact monitoring, and education. The presentation concluded with an interactive session in which audience members were asked to work through a potential age discrimination scenario.
