The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (``EEOC'' or ``Commission'') is publishing this final rule to amend its Age Discrimination in Employment Act (the ``Act'' or ``ADEA'') regulations to conform them to the Supreme Court's holding in General Dynamics Land System, Inc. v. Cline, 540 U.S. 581 (2004), that the ADEA only prohibits discrimination based on relatively older age, not discrimination based on age generally. Thus, the final rule deletes language in EEOC's ADEA regulations that prohibited discrimination against relatively younger individuals. The new rule explains that the ADEA only prohibits employment discrimination based on old age and, therefore, does not prohibit employers from favoring relatively older individuals.
