The ADEA protects people 40 years of age or older from discrimination in the workplace or when applying for jobs.  The ADEA further protects workers from retaliation for openly opposing discriminatory practices based on age or from cooperating with or participating in litigation under the ADEA.  The ADEA covers employers with 20 or more employees, including state and local governments.
