The EEOC has been busy this fall in Texas. The agency recently sued the Edgewater Retirement Community in Galveston for allegedly refusing to hire a 78-year-old job applicant.
The man says he was passed over for a 55-year-old with fewer qualifications. The EEOC claims the retirement home application included a question asking whether applicants were over age 70.
Final Note: Never inquire about an applicant’s age on an application. Once you have made an offer, you can ask for a birth date to complete the hiring process.
