EXPERIENCED & SKILLED DISCRIMINATION ATTORNEYS
We have successfully recovered millions of dollars for our clients

Every day, our employment lawyers hear about age discrimination issues at the workplace. It is illegal for an employer to discriminate against someone based on age. Qualifications and the ability perform the essential job functions should serve as the only facts that an employer uses to decide whether or not to employ or keep that employee on staff. The reality is, however, many employers use other antiquated markers based on prejudices that they may hold.

Age Discrimination Claim Cases

Employers cannot base their decisions based on your age - it is considered age discrimination and may give employees the right to sue and merit employees damages which they may have suffered as a result of the employer's unlawful actions.

What Is Age Discrimination?

It is unlawful for your employer to treat you differently simply because of your age. Even in the early and mid 20th century, it was lawful for employers to make a decision based on their employee's age. That means that if you were old back in the day in America, an employer could fire you or force you to retire and it would not have been against the law. In 1967, Congress passed a law which prohibited employers from doing such an arbitrary act. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) forbids employers from discriminating against employees who are 40 years of age or older.

What Is Age Discrimination?

Age discrimination occurs when an employer treats an applicant or employee differently or less favorably just because of their age. The Age Discrimination Employment Act (ADEA) of 1967 prohibits making employment decisions based on someone's age if they are 40 years of age or older. As stated previously, age discrimination can occur discreetly or blatantly in many facets of the work environment. The law does not allow for employers to discriminate against their older workers in aspects of employment, continued employment, terminating, layoff, training, job assignments, benefits, and any other conditions that are written in the employee handbook. So, for example, if you are the most qualified worker in your position and there is a promotion opportunity for you, your employer cannot overlook you and hire someone younger for the job simply because you are an older worker. This is discrimination and may give you the right to file a lawsuit against your employer for age discrimination.

How to Prove Age Discrimination in the Workplace

It is unlawful for employers to discriminate against their employees in any way, shape, or form. Discrimination occurs when employers treat someone of a protected class differently than other coworkers. When it comes to business, employers cannot focus on things like race, sex, religion, color, country of origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, genetic information, and even age. Our AGE Discrimination Attorneys can sue your employer if an illegal age discrimination has occurred, in order to get you the justice that you deserve.

Age discrimination in the workplace can shapeshift and take many forms. Some forms are discreet and difficult to see if one is not looking, while other are so blatantly obvious it's almost painful to witness. Regardless of whichever discrimination you may have experienced, it is still up to you to gather enough evidence to prove to a court that is was more likely than not that your employer made employment-based decisions only on your age.
