Abstract and Keywords

People are working longer, with the result that workplaces are becoming older and more age-diverse. For these reasons, workplace age discrimination is of increasing importance. This chapter describes a number of mechanisms that may explain age stereotyping and may lead to workplace age discrimination in the areas of hiring, training, performance appraisal, layoffs and reemployment, and interpersonal treatment. Noting that the growing interest in age at work among researchers and practitioners has led to a number of recent developments, the chapter reviews more recent advances in the field of workplace age discrimination and recommends a number of pathways for future research.

Keywords: aging workforce, age bias, age discrimination, age stereotyping, age diversity
