Age Discrimination

Under both federal and California law, it is unlawful to discriminate against employees because of their age. Employees over the age of 40 are protected against adverse employment actions taken by the employer because of their age. Unlawful age discrimination can take many forms including termination, demotion, denial of promotion, forced retirement, denial of work opportunities, and more.

If your employer hired a younger and less qualified candidate, refused to promote you, changed your benefits, or otherwise discriminated against you, then you need to seek legal help. Your age does not define you or your work abilities. You deserve to be treated the same as every other employee.

Age discrimination claims are generally fact intensive and difficult to prove. The lawyers at Work Justice can help you build a compelling case for age discrimination. You may be awarded compensation for your current and future economic losses as well as emotional distress. Find out now how we can help.
