Civil rights scholars and litigators have spent well-deserved attention on the issue of intersectional discrimination -- how it presents itself in the workplace, how claims should be framed, and courts’ difficulties understanding and properly analyzing such claims. Yet surprisingly little attention has been focused on intersectional discrimination involving age. This panel will consider research findings on intersectional discrimination based on age/sex and age/race, examine the unique aspects of age/disability discrimination, and discuss the challenges of having to press legal claims under multiple statutes that contain different legal standards, procedures, and remedies.
