    Are laws against age discrimination effective?

    I have been engaged in a discussion on this topic on a discussion board. Coincidentally, at dinner tonight a manager from a large organization--that shall remain nameless--volunteered that his HR manager said that she is not interested in hiring anyone over 42.

    I don't think that there is any way to do so.  Unless they come out and say it, or unless you have access to hiring records which clearly show a pattern of hiring only people under X-number of years it seems not really plausible to me.
