With this article, it discusses new regulations that were set in place in Great
Britain in 2006. It says that the Age Partnership Group (APG) sent out
newsletters helping businesses in preparing for these new regulations. They
gave tips on seeking out a personal organizer which would provide them
with information on age-related topics. Although the article is short, it is good
because it talks about age discrimination in a country other than ours.
Seeing how other countries handle issues with discrimination is interesting
because sometimes it can be similar to ours and sometimes it can be quite

The text gives an entire run down of Human Resource Management. It gives
information about a variety of different topics such as recruiting new
employees, selecting those that will be interviewed, the interview process,
and so on. One thing it also focuses on is diversity in the workplace. This can
include age, gender, race, disability, national origin, color, and/or religion. It
discusses how businesses have to follow rules and regulations enforced here
in the United States and what each rule is depending on the topic. It will be

useful, along with the other articles. In explaining age discrimination, how
law officials have tried to prevent it, and why it is important. With people
working longer in life, it is going to be very important for everyone in the
workplace to understand what age discrimination is to not only protect
themselves from mistreatment, but also help protect their coworkers as well.
They also do not want to be punished for mistreating someone because they
were unaware of the rules that are in place.

This article talks about how with the way people are working later in life due
to the economy, it is important to have rules set up and enforced to prevent
age discrimination. People are having to work later in life due to not being
economically stable to retire. With more businesses being ran by younger
managers, it is important that these managers have regulations that they
must follow to stop them from treating older employees unfairly. This article
is very useful because it provides a case that was decided in the Supreme
Court where age discrimination took place. What is interesting also about
this article is that it talks about age discrimination in the television and
entertainment industry. People sometimes forget that it is just not the
everyday people that have issues with discrimination and that it can occur
with our celebrities as well.

the workplace impact of intentional/unintentional age discrimination.
Journal of Managerial Psychology, 28(7), 907-927.
The purpose of this article is to discuss the differences between intentional
and unintentional age discrimination. It talks about perception and how
different people can perceive age discrimination differently than others. The
problem here is people may be discriminating and not even realize they are
doing it. It gives information about a study that was performed using
different variables that showed the relationship between age and employee
engagement. This article will be helpful in providing factual information
based on studies performed on the topic and how researchers have found
the ways older employees are treated based on rewards and promotions. It
also points out the age discrimination can occur with younger employees as
well and that it does not always just affect those that are older.

The article looks at the other side of the spectrum and how older workers
working longer in life can affect their employers. Because people are working
past the minimum retirement age, it can put some added pressure on the
employer to make sure the employee is given the benefits they need as well

as the fair treatment that they are required to give. It gives ways that
employers can ensure a smooth transition in managing these older
employees. Like most of the other articles, it discusses the issue of age
discrimination and stereotypes that exist about older working employees.
The article is useful because it does give information about how employers
have to deal with age discrimination and make sure they are following the
rules that are in place. Although there is reasons for those rules to be in
place, it does make it difficult sometimes for the employer to make sure
these older people are being taken care of but also run their business the
best way they can.

What is very interesting about this article is that it talks about other
countries besides the United States. The article explains that it is to make
people aware of age discrimination so that they can help put a stop to it. This
article is very useful because not only does it talk about issues we have with
age discrimination here in the United States, it shows how it is handled in
countries like Turkey, Afghanistan, and Jamaica. It was interesting to read
how some countries do not even have regulations set up to protect older

employees and that they are sometimes treated really poorly. It really puts
into perspective how much of an issue age discrimination really can be and
why it is so important for rules and regulations to be set. A survey was done
to ask questions about different countries policies and how they felt that
people were treated in the workplace. The results of the survey can be used
to explain differences between other countries and how people feel about
age discrimination in those countries.

The article talks about how to eliminate discrimination in the workplace. The
good thing about this article is that it discusses all types of discrimination,
not just age related. There are many acts and regulations in place to protect
people from discrimination and if employers do not follow them then there
are consequences that follow. However, these issues are still a problem in
the workplace. The article gives ways that stopping discrimination has failed
and four steps that companies should use to prevent discrimination from
occurring in their business. Even though this article gives information on
other types of discrimination, it does discuss age discrimination and will be
useful in providing information about it.

The article discusses the issues with age discrimination with older employs
defining age discrimination as when someone is mistreated in the workplace
due to their age. Age discrimination can happen in any line of work and
especially now with advancements in technology. There are myths that say
older people are not capable of doing their job because they are unable to
use the technology required or that they are going to be slower than
someone younger than them. It talks about rules that have been set in place
that employers must follow to protect older employees. The article is filled
with valuable information that really explains the topic as well as the reasons
of why it exists. It also gives an example of where age discrimination has
occurred, how someone would prove it is happening and what type of
damages could be collected if age discrimination was proven to be taking
place. The article is going to be very useful in providing information needed
to explain the importance of protecting people against age discrimination
and how what must be done to get people to stop thinking in the mindset
that older people are insufficient.
