In California, if you are over 40 years of age, you are protected by the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). The ADEA makes it illegal for companies with more than 20 employees to discriminate against employees who are over 40 years of age. The ADEA offers protection in hiring, firing and promoting practices.
