I have often joked I can tell what is going to be a hot area merely by paying attention to the numerous seminar brochures that cross my desk and noting the topics that speakers across the country are going to be talking about. Recently, that would have indicated that age discrimination was going to be on the rise, with the title usually making a cute association with the aging of the baby boomers. In this case, the numbers as well as the anecdotal evidence, are establishing that this is more than just seminar talk. Just an example is the story, As Layoffs Rise, So Do Age-Discrimination Charges in the business section of today's New York Times.
