Supplement Information

The 2014 Cumulative Supplement contains a timely update on significant case law and administrative agency developments through June 30, 2014, including:

  • Analyzes the latest appellate court decisions dealing with the “cat’s paw” theory of age discrimination and explores how federal courts are analyzing potentially ageist remarks such as “fresh leadership,” “shelf life,” and “more energy” in disparate impact cases
  • Explores recent federal court actions involving the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), including efforts to curtail age discrimination waivers that are non-compliant with the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act and the standard under which a court will award attorney’s fees to a prevailing defendant
  • Discusses the still-evolving impact of the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the ADEA “but for” causation standard in Gross v. FBL Financial Services, Inc. (2009) and probes whether all federal courts are holding firm to this interpretation
