The United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit issued a significant decision interpreting the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA).

A majority of the full court reached an opposite result from the panel and determined that the governing provision of the ADEA barring disparate impact age discrimination by employers does not permit job applicants to bring claims of age discrimination under the ADEA against prospective employers. Disparate impact claims would arise in situations where an employer’s policies and procedures lack a discriminatory intent and are purportedly neutral on their face, but nevertheless have a discriminatory effect.
