Steven Mitchell Sack, “The Employee’s Lawyer,” was interviewed by Forbes.com for an article on whether the United States would update its age discrimination laws to match those of The Equality Act in the United Kingdom, which permits younger workers to sue employers for age discrimination. Mr. Sack said such a law would be difficult to implement.
“While it’s a great question in theory, an expanded law will never happen because it’s illogical and impractical in practice,” Mr. Sack said. “Protecting a 28-year-old from age discrimination is silly. It’s hard enough to prove it when you have a 60-year-old, unless you have substantial proof.”
