RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I just heard a story that sounds like age discrimiation in the health insurance industry.
An employer is not allowed to discriminate against an applicant due to age. However, if and older person is hired, or is kept on staff, the insurance rate for the business and the individual could be increased due to age.
1) Why, if the older community pays longer into the insurance industry, should the insurance rate go up?
2) Dosn't this encourage age discrimination?
