Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thank you for using JA. I am Loren, a licensed attorney for over 30 yrs., and I am here to help.
I appreciate your patience as I review your question. I will post my response shortly.
Be aware, however, this is general information and no attorney client relationship is established.
The site may ask you if you wish to speak by phone for an extra charge. There is no obligation for you to accept the phone call offer, unless you want. While I am happy to speak to you, if you wish, I am also happy to continue online. So, there is no pressure to spend extra money.
If an employer has a legitimate reason, like workforce planning or succession planning, it’s not a violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) to ask an employee about his or her retirement plans.
If the employee says “No, I have no retirement plans,” that’s the end of the conversation. If the employer continue to press, that can move move over the line toward age discrimination and harassment.
Did you have further questions? I am happy to continue if you do.
Otherwise, have I answered your question?
It is possible. It depends on the circumstances and the context.
