On February 24, 2004, the United States Supreme Court ruled that a law protecting older workers from age discrimination on the job doesn’t cover workers over 40 when employers give better benefits to older colleagues. The court said Age Discrimination in Employment Act, which protects people over age 40 from age bias. is meant to protect older workers from preferential treatment given to younger workers, but the law does not apply in reverse.
