Standing Up For Victims Of Age Discrimination
You have job skills that only years of experience can provide. Yet you have been denied a promotion or sidelined in favor of younger employees who have only a fraction of the knowledge and experience. Or perhaps you have been laid off along with many other workers over 40, while your employer spared younger workers.
Under the law, you may have an age discrimination claim. You may be entitled to compensation for your lost income, benefits, and other economic and noneconomic losses.
“Age discrimination in the workplace is against the law. At my firm, I vigorously represent Texas workers whose rights have been violated.” — Terrence B. Robinson
About Age Discrimination Laws
The federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and Texas Labor Code Chapter 21 forbid employment discrimination against people who are 40 years of age or older. In Texas, private employers with at least 15 employees and government entities of any size are prohibited from discriminating on the basis of age. However, there are a number of exceptions. Only a careful examination of the facts can reveal whether you have an actionable claim.
Some examples of possible age discrimination include the following:
- The owner of the company says it needs “new blood.”
- You receive a negative job evaluation because it is claimed that you are not “flexible” or cannot adapt to new processes.
- A supervisor makes explicit comments about the age and health of certain workers.
- You are part of a layoff that includes mostly older workers and few younger ones.
