Age Discrimination

We represent employees who have experienced age discrimination in the workplace.  Under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), employers are generally prohibited from taking adverse employment actions against employees on the basis of their age.  Because the ADEA only applies to employees who are forty years of age or older, not everyone is legally protected against age discrimination in the workplace.


If you are forty or older, you may have been subjected to age discrimination under the ADEA if your employer has:


  • Treated you and other workers who are forty or older more favorably than younger workers;
  • Made offensive comments to you concerning your age;
  • Terminated your employment on the basis of your age;
  • Replaced you with a younger worker;
  • Taken other employment actions against you because of your age


If you believe you have been the victim of age discrimination, you need to know your legal options.  Please contact our firm to learn more.
