Are You Too Old To Work?
Employers do not always respect the wisdom of elders. In the workplace as well as the culture at large, youth is valued over experience. But when this engrained ageism means that you’re denied an opportunity, a raise or a promotion or you are fired and replaced by a younger worker, you may be able to file an age discrimination lawsuit against your employer or would-be employer.
Age discrimination in the workplace can take many forms, including:
- Being denied medical benefits on the basis of age
- Losing a job opportunity on the basis of age (with certain exceptions)
- Being fired and replaced by a younger worker
- Making less money than a younger worker doing the same job
Age discrimination can be hard to prove, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. Call the
Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman, P.C., in Los Angeles, California, to discuss the details of your situation with an experienced employment law attorney.
Age Is Just A Number, But Your Bank Balance Isn’t
The federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) provides protections for workers who are 40 or older. More and more, workers want (and need) to work longer before retirement. As the days of working at one job for decades before retiring with a pension recede farther into the past, older workers need more protection in the workplace to maintain financial security.
If you believe that you may have been discriminated against in the workplace based on your age, you need the advice of an employment lawyer who can inform you of your rights and offer frank counsel about the burden of proof. Speak
directly with Todd Friedman to get the answers you need.
