One of the jobs HR must deal with is an aging workforce. While HR must and should deal with this issue sensitively, there are considerations and issues that arise that could create a potential legal minefield. Not only must HR address issues implicating the FMLA and the ADA but also must be careful to avoid age discrimination problems. Complicating life for HR are those employees that announce their intentions to retire or transition out of full time work. Is it okay to engage them on these conversations? What if they change their minds? What if you are too far in the transition process to adjust? Are you complicit in "forcing them out" because of their age? This presentation will address these questions and more. Specific focus will be on the ADA and age-related disabilities, the FMLA and age-related leave, the ADEA and the OWBPA. The presentation will provide guidance to HR on how to legally address and handle an aging workforce and those employees going on their "farewell tour."
