  • liability under the ADEA is narrower than under Title VII id at 240 Congress did not intend for the reasonable factor other than age provision to grant employers a free pass to justify conduct that adversely impacts older workers See Watson v Fort WorthBank Trust 487 U S 977 1011 J Blackmun concurring Allowing an employer to escape liability simply by articulating vague inoffensive sounding subjective criteria would disserve the ADEA s goal of eradicating discrimination in employment Such a rule would encourage employers to abandon attempts to construct selection mechanisms subject to neutral application for the shelter of vague generalities footnote omitted AARP urges the Commission to propose regulations that state that the reasonable qualifier of the RFOA defense requires employers to prove that the neutral employment practice is not in any way related to age but instead is job or performance related A requirement that a reasonable factor other than age may not be related to age complies with the Court s directive in Smith that liability under the ADEA is precluded if the adverse impact was attributable to a nonage factor 544 U S at 239 emphasis added For example a requirement that employees must pass a physical examination after reaching a certain age to continue in employment should not escape liability under the ADEA as a reasonable factor other than age because that factor is based directly on age EEOC v Massachusetts 987 F 2d 64 73 1st Cir 1993 See also EEOCv Johnson Higgins Inc 91F 3d 1529 1541 2d Cir 1996 Theplain language of 623 f 1 makes it clear that an employer has a defense ifhis policy is based on reasonable factors other than age not ifthe policy is reasonably based on 2 See e g Pippin v Burlington Resources Oil and Gas Co 440 F 3d 1186 1200 10th Cir 2006 Meacham v Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory 461 F 3d 134 139 2d Cir 2006 3 See United States v Menasche 348 U S 528 539 40 1955 describing a court s duty to give effect to every clause and word of a statute 3 age Nor should a factor that includes an age component qualify as a reasonable factor other than age In EEOC v Local 350 Plumbers Pipefitters 998 F 2d 641 648 9th Cir 1992 the Ninth Circuit correctly rejected c l reasonable factor other than age defense to a union hiring policy that required retirees to stop receiving pension benefits where receipt of such benefits was conditioned on age Indeed pension eligibility should not qualify as a reasonable factor other than age because it almost always includes age as an element of eligibility See e g EEOC v City of Altoona 723 F 2d 4 6 3d Cir 1983 Second the language of ADEA section 4 f 1 29 U S C 623 f 1 requires that the factors other than age must be reasonable While neither the statute nor its legislative history provides a definition of the
