– Protect Older Job Applicants Act of 2021 (Rep. Garcia (TX) – Education and Labor) 


Currently, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) does not cover job applicants seeking relief from age discrimination. The Protect Older Job Applicants Act of 2021 would amend ADEA to ensure that ADEA does protect older job applicants. POJA clarifies that older job applicants can challenge disparate impact discriminatory hiring practices under ADEA.
