Age Discrimination In Human Resource Recruiting Process



    () (Faculty of Business, Babes-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania)


Age discrimination in human resource recruiting is a present but culturally ignored problem. The boundaries of this social phenomenon are constructed by few social actors accordingly to their power, knowledge, resources and interests. In order to have a real social justice and an efficient recruiting process we have to understand in a phenomenological manner all the various perspectives and to integrate them in a coherent public policy.
