By William P. Burns The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibits discrimination in the workplace on the basis of age. To establish a prima facie case of age discrimination, a claimant must demonstrate that he/she 1) is in the protected class of age 40 or older; 2) was performing to the employerbs legitimate expectations; 3) was subject to an adverse employment action; and 4) that similarly situated and substantially younger employees were treated more favorably. Also, the ADEA proscribes discrimination against job applicants on the basis of age. The ADEA is a separate law apart from Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which is the basic federal law which covers most forms of discrimination in employment. Discrimination based upon age was not a part of the 1964 law, but was enacted as a separate statute by Congress in 1967. This legislation is unique among this countrybs anti-discrimination laws in that it establishes a "protected classification", i.e., those age 40 and older, which all of us, if we are lucky, will one day attain.

OVERVIEW The Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI) has resolved to aggressively combat the devastating impact of HIV/AIDS on children and young adolescents. In the words of UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, "World AIDS Day provides the international community with a unique opportunity to reassure those already affected of our support and to say no to discrimination and denial." HISTORY In January 1988, a meeting was held to discuss the powerful consequences of an emerging epidemic called AIDS. That day, 140 countries attending the World Summit of Ministers of Health on Programmes for AIDS Prevention unanimously agreed to support one internationally recognized campaign to combat HIV/AIDS. Now observed annually on December 1, the first World AIDS Day theme was "A World United Against AIDS." As early as 1989, ACEI recognized the importance of education in the prevention of AIDS. In the spring issue of Childhood Education , the organization published M. Patricia Fetter's article "AIDS Education: Every Teacher's Responsibility." In it, Fetter, stated "Health officials cannot control the spread of AIDS without indepth education, and the critical environment for that education is the classroom."

The United Nations World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance (WCAR) will be held from 31 August - 7 September 2001 in Durban, South Africa. The WCAR objectives include to:
  • Review all factors leading to racism and racial discrimination; Review progress in the fight against racism; Increase awareness of the problems; and Recommend measures to combat all forms of racism.
The UN General Assembly requested the World Conference to focus on 'action-oriented and practical steps to eradicate racism', including questions of prevention, education and protection and the provision of effective remedies. The Conference will also examine emerging challenges such as those posed by the proliferation of race hate speech on the Internet. The Australian Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (HREOC) is actively participating in international preparations for the Conference and undertaking a number of preparatory activities in Australia.
This briefing paper has been prepared by HREOC to provide Australian organisations with basic information on the World Conference against Racism, the international preparatory process and the Commission's consultation process

Silent discrimination
Carolyn Eastwood
Specialist Registrar
Fulbrook Centre, Oxford
Transcultural psychiatry has been based on race and geography. There is another group whose culture demands a distinct approach to their psychiatric needs. The prelingually deaf are a distinct group of individuals who have been profoundly deaf since birth or early childhood and who communicate using Sign Language. Unlike those who have gone deaf in later life they have generally never heard the spoken word. English is their second language. They have a unique culture of their own. When writing the word deaf they use a capital D to signify that they identify themselves as part of the Deaf culture. Different Lives

What is the current mental health provision for Deaf people? There are three Deaf services in the UK (London, Birmingham and Manchester). These are mainly aimed at the adults of working age population. All services will see people over the age of 65 years. Referrals for this group are low in number, experience is never really built up and the medical and psychosocial interventions used in old age psychiatry forgotten. Conversely, the local Old Age Psychiatrist may not have the knowledge and experience of Deaf culture or Sign Language. Many do not get referred at all. We know from research in the Deaf general adult population that this lack of familiarity can lead to misdiagnoses and mismanagement.

    45% of the UK population is over 40. Yet we will have to wait until 2006 before the law can be enforced against discrimination. A report published by Third Age Foundation (TAF) called 'Past it at 40?' highlights the discrepancies in the british workforce, which on one hand values experience, yet discriminates against those very people who have it - the over 40's. The summary can be viewed and printed in either PDF formats or plain html A full version text version can be ordered from Leaflet also available Because of the expertise developed since the early 1990's helping older people over forty, Third Age Foundation has become involved with several programmes.

    Older Grad Students Cite Age, Experience As Advantages
    By Ricki Lewis The graduate school years are the best of times and the worst of times. Scientists often look back at these years as a period when they could finally focus on their favorite subject. Yet graduate school in a life science requires such time-consuming and intense research efforts that life can include little else. This can create difficulties for students over age 30, who are more likely than their younger counterparts to have families.
    FAMILY TIES: Elizabeth Luna, who has mentored older Ph.D. students, notes that having children creates extra demands on one's time. Older graduate students say that while experience in life and the workplace brings certain advantages to handling graduate school, responsibilities can intervene. "Different family circumstances can cause additional demands on graduate students. Most graduate students, for instance, don't have to schlep kids to soccer practice," observes Elizabeth J. Luna, 45, a senior scientist at the Worcester Foundation for Biomedical Research in Shrewsbury, Mass., who has mentored several older Ph.D. students. But experience in the real world can give older graduate students an edge. "Students who came in for a Ph.D. right out of their B.S. degrees were not psychologically as well prepared to deal with the stresses. They had the smarts, but they hadn't been in [a work] environment where everything you do is criticized," says Dirk Vanderklein, a professor of biology at Montclair State University in Montclair, N.J., recalling his graduate school days. Vanderklein attended grad school when he was in his early 30s.

Back to Home Thursday, Apr 03, 2003 News Posted on Fri, Feb. 07, 2003 Job Discrimination Cases Hit 7-Year High LEIGH STROPE Associated Press WASHINGTON Federal job discrimination complaints filed by workers against private employers jumped more than 4 percent in 2002 to the highest level in seven years. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said Thursday that complaints increased to 84,442 during the 2002 budget year, up from 80,840 the previous year. Complaints in 2002 reached the highest level since 1995, when 87,529 were filed. The poor economy, an aging and multinational work force and backlash from the 2001 terrorist attacks likely contributed to the increase, said EEOC Chairwoman Cari M. Dominguez. She noted the large increases in allegations of religious, age and national origin discrimination. Religious complaints increased 21 percent, age complaints were up 14.5 percent and national origin complaints rise 13 percent.
