미국 뉴저지주 나이차별에 관한 조사 - AARP. 2002

2017.02.25 14:10

AARP New Jersey Age Discrimination Survey. May. 2002


Background


As more Americans live longer and healthier lives, many are working longer or going back to work after retirement. A recent study conducted by AARP found that 8 in 10 baby boomers are planning to work during their “retirement years” (AARP, 2000), and the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that between 1998 and 2008 the percentage of workers age 45 and older will increase by about 7 percent, adding nearly 17 million workers to this age group (Dohm, 2000). Furthermore, workers age 55 to 64 are projected to increase by 10 million during this time (Fullerton, 1999). Combined with a slowing economy and dwindling pensions, workforce changes such as these could give rise to increasing incidents of age discrimination in employment.

The federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) of 1967 states that employers with 20 or more employees may not discriminate against workers age 40 and older in recruitment, hiring, training, promotion, pay, benefits, firing, layoffs, retirement, and any other aspect of employment because of age. All 50 states have age discrimination statutes with widely varying provisions.


Purpose


This telephone survey of 801 New Jersey residents age 40 and older was conducted between April 5 – April 14, 2002 to assess public awareness of age discrimination in the workplace, opinions about the importance of protecting against age discrimination, and opinions on specific provisions being considered in New Jersey age discrimination law.


Summary 


Age discrimination in the workplace is an issue recognized by older New Jerseyites, and many have seen, heard, or read about this issue in the news over the past year. These residents clearly feel that older workers should not be forced to retire because of age, and they believe that most older workers perform as well on the job as younger workers. These are significant findings considering that about 4 in 10 New Jersey respondents age 40 and older surveyed indicate a personal experience with one or more kinds of age discrimination in the workplace, whether it was themselves or someone close to them. Furthermore, over 8 in 10 say it is more or equally important to prevent age discrimination compared to other forms of discrimination.

In terms of legal consequences for workplace age discrimination, New Jersey respondents age 40 and older believe employers should have to pay the legal fees for workers who win age discrimination cases against them. New Jerseyites also believe workers have a right to know, before they are asked to sign away their rights, the ages and job classifications of those offered a buy-out incentive compared to those who are not offered such an incentive during a downsizing. Given these results, there is likely to be support for revising New Jersey age discrimination law for at least the two elements tested in this survey.

배경


더 많은 미국인들이 더 오래 살고 건강한 삶을 누릴수록 많은 사람들이 은퇴 후 일하거나 일하러 돌아갑니다. 


AARP가 실시한 2000년 연구에 따르면 베이비 붐 세대 10명 중 8명은 베이비 붐 세대 "정년"까지 일을 계획하고 있다고 답했습니다. 노동 통계국 (Bureau of Labor Statistics) 프로젝트는 1998년과 2008년 사이에 45세 이상의 근로자 비율이 약 7%가 증가하여 약 1700 만명의 근로자가 이 연령대에 추가되었습니다. 또한 55~64세의 근로자는이 기간 동안 1,000만명이 증가할 것으로 예상됩니다. 경제가 둔화되고 연금이 줄어들면서 고용 인력의 변화로 인해 고용에서 연령 차별이 증가 할 수 있습니다. 


1967년 연방 연령 차별 고용법 (ADEA)에 따르면 20명 이상의 직원을 고용한 고용주는 40세 이상의 고용인에 대한 고용, 고용, 교육, 승진, 급여, 복리 후생, 해고, 해고, 은퇴 및 기타 차별을하지 않을 수 있습니다 나이 때문에 고용의 다른 양상. 50 개 주에는 모두 다양한 규정이있는 연령 차별 법령이 있습니다.


목적


40세 이상의 뉴저지 주민 801명을 대상으로 2002년 4월 5일부터 4월 14일까지 전화 조사를 실시한 결과,  직장에서의 연령 차별에 대한 대중의 인식과 연령 차별 방지의 중요성에 대한 의견, 뉴저지 나이 차별 법에서 고려되었습니다. 


요약 


직장에서의 연령 차별은 나이 든 뉴저지 주민들이 인정하는 문제이며, 많은 사람들은 지난 한 해 동안 뉴스에서이 문제를 보고 듣고 읽었습니다. 이 거주자들은 나이가 들어서 고령 근로자가 은퇴하지 말아야한다고 생각하며, 대부분의 고령 근로자가 젊은 근로자처럼 잘 수행한다고 믿습니다. 40세 이상의 뉴저지 주 응답자 중 10명 중 4명 이상이 직장에서 한 가지 이상의 연령 차별을 겪은 개인 경험을 나타냄을 고려하면 이는 중요한 결과입니다. 게다가 10명 중 8명 이상이 다른 차별과 비교하여 연령 차별을 예방하는 것이 더 중요하거나 동등하게 중요하다고 말합니다. 


직장 연령 차별에 대한 법적 결과에 따르면 40세 이상인 뉴저지 응답자는 고용주가 나이 차별을당한 근로자에게 법적 비용을 지불해야한다고 생각합니다. 뉴저지 주민들은 근로자가 자신의 권리를 포기하기 전에 근로자에게 연령 제한 및 인센티브를 제공하는 사람들에게 인센티브를 제공하지 않는 사람들에 비해 구매 인센티브를 제공할 권리가 있음을 믿습니다. 이러한 결과를 감안할 때 이 설문 조사에서 실험한 적어도 두 가지 요소에 대한 뉴저지 연령 차별법 개정에 도움을 줄 가능성이 있습니다.
