3425. PROCEDURES--THE AGE DISCRIMINATION IN EMPLOYMENT ACT

Priority: Substantive, Nonsignificant

Legal Authority: 29 USC 628, sec 115, Civil Rights Act of 1991

CFR Citation: 29 CFR 1626

Legal Deadline: None

Abstract: Section 115 of the Civil Rights Act of 1991 deleted 
references to the Portal-to-Portal Act from the private suit provisions 
of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and replaced them 
with a requirement that suit be filed no later than 90 days after 
termination of proceedings or dismissal of a charge by EEOC. 
Accordingly, section 1626.7(a) is being deleted and section 1626.15(b) 
is being revised because they were both based upon the Portal-to-Portal 
Act. New sections are being added concerning termination of EEOC 
proceedings and the issuance of notices of the new 90-day limitation 
period.
