ยง 11074. General Prohibition Against Discrimination on the Basis of Age over the Age of Forty

(a) Statement of Purpose. The purpose of the law prohibiting age discrimination in employment is to guarantee all protected individuals 40 or over employment opportunities commensurate with their abilities. These regulations are promulgated to assure that employment opportunities for those protected persons over the age of 40 are based upon their abilities and are not conditioned upon age-based stereotypes and unsupported generalizations about their qualifications or job performance. In addition, these regulations are promulgated to clarify when the use of mandatory retirement programs that are based upon age over the age of 40 is unlawful.

(b) Incorporation of General Regulations. These regulations pertaining to discrimination on the basis of age incorporate each of the provisions of Articles 1 and 2 of Subchapter 2, unless a provision is specifically excluded or modified.
