WORKPLACE AGE

DISCRIMINATION

Have you or other employees over the age of 40 been terminated or laid off? Are promotions being granted to younger employees with less qualifications. If so, you might have a potential claim for age discrimination.


Age Discrimination Employment Act
The Age Discrimination Employment Act (ADEA) is a federal law that protects employees that are at least 40 years old. Employers cannot make decisions regarding an employee’s employment based off their age.


How can age discrimination be seen?

  • Demotion and denied promotions 

  • Denied benefits 

  • Harassment to retire
