It focuses on several reports from global agencies, including the International Labor Organization (ILO). The Justice Department says that it violates federal civil rights laws prohibiting gender discrimination in employment and education". In the United States, there were 16,585 claims filed under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act in 2005, but there were 20,857 claims filed in 2016. The role of the ILO has been to ensure that employment does not cause potential harm to women or their children and that having a child does not jeopardize a woman's job due to discrimination. In the Republic of Korea, affirmative action legislation requires that employers employ at least 3% of their workforce from the 55 and older age group.
