The U.S. Employment Opportunity Commission makes it illegal for South Carolina employers to disfavor an employee or potential employee due to age. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) protects any people who are age 40 or older.
This age discrimination is not limited to the employment process, but also includes harassment and employment policies or practices that will impact someone 40 or older.
