What is Age Discrimination?
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) protects individuals in California and throughout the country who are ages 40 and over from employment discrimination because of age. Under this law, it is illegal to discriminate against a person because of his or her age with respect to any privilege, terms or conditions of employment, including:
- Job Assignments
If you feel you have suffered from age discrimination by being laid off or reassigned because of your age, it is important that you contact one of the experienced lawyers at David Yeremian & Associates, Inc. to discuss the process of holding your employer accountable for their violation of this important employment law.
Employers are aware that age discrimination is illegal, but it does not stop them from targeting their aged-40 and above employees in an effort to save money, reduce pension payouts or simply to pay less to a younger individual. Any of these instances are age discrimination and are only the beginning of our strategic defense arguments against the offenders.
