Seattle Times letters to the editor

Age discrimination

Not ready to retire

In a letter from Dick Nelson there is a reference to “the state’s mandatory retirement age of 70” [“Get in the spirit,” Northwest Voices, Nov. 27]. There has been no mandatory retirement age for faculty at the University of Washington since 1994.

Federal laws on age discrimination have been interpreted as prohibiting mandatory retirement ages except in a few specific cases (e.g., law-enforcement officers.)

— Harry Edmon, Brier
