@S.N I do think age discrimination is easier to ignore. And just because it is ignored doesn't mean the issue doesn't exist or loose it 's moral weight. But often most H.R. department ignore this aspect as well.
The department is so hypocritical when it comes to this issue, if H.R. is going to deal with issues, don't just pick the easy ones.
I am beginning to think that maybe there is a correlation between the number of harassment cases to the actual structure of most H.R. departments today, which are comprised of mostly women.
What topics does one think this group will be well versed in ? Age Discrimination ? or Sexual harassment ?
As they say, "the numbers don't lie".
Following this logic, unless a older person has been sexually harassed, then he or she should not expect too much more that "lip service" from their H..R. department.
I often think my view towards H.R. is too tough or perhaps even unfair. That they really are just doing a job, but who truly gate-keeps ?
No-one. And that is the problem.
