I do not get political on this page and try to keep things light; however, I have to say something about this. The fact that Congress has not even begun to discuss another Covid relief package to help small businesses and the unemployed is infuriating. The Senate just left Washington for their Thanksgiving break (as if they work hard!!). The unemployment numbers just went up this week and more areas are shutting down because the virus is surging. No matter what your political persuasion is or who you believe won this election, the fact that the crew currently in Washington has not done anything to help suffering Americans is outrageous. These people work for us so I urge you to start to remind them of this. Call your senator and congress person and tell them they need to negotiate, compromise and pass something to help people.

See below. If this happens to you, it could be discrimination so something to be aware of for those older people still working.

Employers warned not to exclude older workers from certain activities

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) says employers can't exclude older employees from certain activities, even to protect them from COVID-19. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) “would prohibit a covered employer from involuntarily excluding an individual from the workplace based on his or her being 65 or older, even if the employer acted for benevolent reasons such as protecting the employee due to higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19,” the EEOC added to its Q&A section on the topic this month. Forbes contributor Kim Elsesser notes that employers can however provide flexibility to workers age 65 and older. The distinction between forcing employees to accept accommodations, which is illegal, and offering them accommodations is key, she writes.

Seems like some of these things just happened yesterday! Guess not!

Google pays $11m to jobseekers who claimed age bias

Google has settled an age discrimination lawsuit concerning its hiring practices. More than two hundred job seekers who were over the age of 40 when they applied for roles at the technology company will receive a settlement of $11m. Forbes' Jack Kelly notes that Google will be forced to train employees and management about age bias, form a committee focused on age diversity round hiring, and ensure age-related complaints are fully investigated to comply with the settlement terms. Cheryl Fillekes, the lead plaintiff in the class-action suit, said she was never offered a job despite being interviewed four times. “Age discrimination is an issue that needs to be addressed in the tech industry,” Ms. Fillekes’ lawyer told Bloomberg, “and we’re very pleased that we were able to obtain a fair settlement for our clients in this case.” Google denies the allegations that it was unfairly dismissive of older applicants, despite having settled the case.

See above.....good that these type of things are starting to be addressed but we have a long way to go in addressing age discrimination in employment.

This is a great article. Good to think about these things. Do you agree?

How to prepare yourself for a good end of life

This is a great article. Good to think about these things. Do you agree?

My parents lived good lives and expected to die good deaths. They exercised daily, ate plenty of fruits and vegetables, and kept, in their well-organized files, boilerplate advance health directives. But when he was 79, my beloved and seemingly vigorous father came up from his basement study, put on...
