Have You Been Terminated or Been Subjected to Discrimination at Work Because of Your Age?

Age Discrimination is Wrong and Illegal – We Help Victims Seek Compensation for Their Discrimination

Employees in the United States are protected from age discrimination under federal and state law. The federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) protects employees who are at least 40 years old and work for an employer with at least 20 employees. The ADEA makes it illegal for an employer to make job-related decisions based solely upon age.

Many state laws go further, such as New York law, which applies to employers of at least 4 employees and protects both older and younger workers from age-related employment discrimination. If you were laid off, but younger employees with less experience were not, you may be suffering from the challenge of age discrimination.

When discrimination occurs, we will seek to hold companies liable to the fullest extent of the law on behalf of our clients.

What Should You Do Right Now? Click Here.

  1. You must complain, which can be done to a supervisor or to the HR department.
  2. Know your rights that age discrimination is wrong, and that it is never the victim’s fault.
  3. Understand what constitutes illegal discrimination – are you being treated differently (and adversely) solely because of your age? Is your employer refusing to offer reasonable accommodations?
  4. DON’T file a complaint or charge with a governmental agency, such as the EEOC, BEFORE speaking with a qualified employment lawyer. Filing a complaint or charge can directly impact the course of action available and your future options.
  5. Learn whether you have a valid claim – get experienced legal advice. Our firm focuses on discrimination, wrongful termination and other workplace claims – we can evaluate your case, and there is no fee or obligation.
  6. Filing deadlines must be considered. These deadlines vary depending on different factors, such as whether the case will be in federal court or state court or the size of the company.
