An AARP survey of Massachusetts voters over age 50 has found that more than a quarter report that they – or someone they know – has experienced employment discrimination based upon their age. reports that AARP is trying to “drum up support from U.S. senators Scott Brown and John Kerry for a federal bill” – the "Protecting Older Workers Against Discrimination Act," which is designed to overturn the Supreme Court’s 2009 Gross decision which increased the burden on employees in proving an age case.  See discussion of Gross and the legislation introduced to overturn Gross in our blog of April 12, 2012.
