Age Discrimination Lawyer | Here to Protect Your Rights in the Workplace

If you believe you’re a victim of age discrimination, you need an attorney who will take your case seriously and hold the right parties accountable. We’ve witnessed age discrimination firsthand all too many times, and we understand the negative impact it can have on a person’s life and career. If you need a Los Angeles County employment lawyer you can depend on, look no further than RD Law Group.

Discrimination Laws in California

The California Fair Employment and Housing Act clearly states that discriminating against any employee over the age of 40 because of their age is illegal. The same is true with the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, though the FEHA tends to offer broader protections to employees than the federal ADEA. That said, if you are a victim of age-based discrimination, you likely have grounds for a valid claim against your employer.

Examples of Age-Based Discrimination

There are various ways in which an employer may discriminate against his or her employees because of their age. Some of the most common examples of age-based discrimination in the workplace that we see are as follows:

  • Refusing to hire older employees
  • Favoring younger employees for promotions, regardless of merit
  • Paying younger employees more money than older employees for the same amount and type of work
  • Demoting older employees
  • Making rude or disparaging comments to or about older employees, also known as harassment
  • Being forced to quit or retire
  • Being unfairly terminated because of age
  • Being wrongfully denied medical leave

Filing Your Claim

If you are a victim of age-based discrimination, you should do what you can to document the incident(s). Emails, text messages, and more can all work to prove your discrimination claim. You should also strongly consider speaking with a competent age discrimination lawyer who can assess the facts of your case, determine whether you have a valid claim, and, from there, pursue the compensation and justice you deserve.

Recovering Compensation

As long as we successfully prove your age discrimination claim, you should receive compensation for the damages you’ve incurred as a result of the age-based discrimination. This can include back pay, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and more. Our goal is to get you maximum compensation so you can move on with your life knowing justice has been served.
