Question:

What should I do if I was discriminated against due to my age?

Answer:

Age DiscriminationAge discrimination in employment is a very common problem. Our nation’s laws and our state laws protect employees over the age of 40 from being discriminated against. What constitutes discrimination? Discrimination is being harassed because of your age – being called “old man” or “old woman” or hearing innuendo based on your age, being told that you can’t do the job of younger employees or being told to retire or to go on Social Security. Age discrimination also can involve being treated differently from other younger employees. For example, a common tactic by employers is to do “a reduction in force” where all the older workers are laid off, but all the younger workers are kept on.

Fortunately, our nation’s laws protect employees from this type of treatment. If you have questions about a potential situation like this or if you feel you’ve been discriminated against because of age, we at the Chavez Law Firm stand ready to provide you with the information that you need and to answer your questions. All you have to do is give us a call and set up an appointment.
