Discrimination on the basis of age is illegal and those over 40 are protected from employment by federal and state laws. It is unlawful to discriminate against an employee or a job applicant because of his or her age with respect to any hiring decisions and promotional or training opportunities.
Additionally, the law prohibits age discrimination when a company is going through staff reductions or layoffs.
Age discrimination may occur under many different circumstances, a few examples of which may include the following:
- Termination, demotion, forced resignation or retirement, or other employment decisions based on age
- Age-related remarks in a job or performance evaluation
- Denial of promotion or raise due to age
- Layoffs or reductions in staff limited to older workers
- Continual promotion of only younger employees within a company
- Pay discrepancies based on age
Our attorneys have experience representing employees who have been laid off or adversely affected in an employment decision as a result of their age.
