The last thing you want is for a manager to make offensive comments about an employee's age (or other protected characteristic).

If you're lucky, any misguided statements by managers will be considered so-called "stray remarks" that are not sufficient to support a discrimination claim. However, remarks don't always fall neatly into either the stray or not-stray category. Comments that may seem like stray remarks to a manager may be seen as evidence of bias in court.
