  • boss tells the staff we don't want anybody over 50

    Ohio

    ...is it legal when a boss tells the staff we don't want anybody over 50 new to hire because they tire out too easily?

    The job at issue is a warehouse job so does that make it legal to say that--but still not EVERYBODY 50 and above would be unable to handle it.

    Seems weird to me and maybe illegal even.

    Saying it is one thing. Applying it to a new hire is age discrimination and he's likely to find the company involved in an expensive lawsuit.

    A better way is to require that the prospective employee demonstrate the physical ability required for the job.
