Can you provide examples of age discrimination by an employer?

If I interview you and make the determination not to hire you because you are too old, this would be discrimination. Some discrimination is good and needed. The discrimination on age for Bar Tenders is an example. You can't hire a 16 year old because they should not be required to make some of the needed decisions that are required in that position.

Other situations are more questionable. Pilots cannot fly passenger aircraft afte a certain age. What that age is may be lower then what should be an issue.
