Tenacious Legal Counsel To Protect Aging Workers’ Rights
Cases focused on age discrimination, much like racial bias in the workplace, are often complicated. You will need a dedicated and passionate attorney in your corner to provide hard evidence that you experienced some of the following circumstances on the job:
- Passed over for promotion opportunities: Have you been passed over for promotion consideration based solely on your age?
- Downplaying your achievements: Does any employer minimize your contributions to the organization in an attempt to sideline you or prevent advancement within the organization?
- Forcing your early retirement or resignation: Some businesses force early departures from the company to hire younger workers at a lower salary.
- Inappropriate references to your age: This unfortunate situation occurs when co-workers or supervisors make derogatory comments or jokes about your age to humiliate you.
- Discounting your long-term potential: Companies often attempt to downplay your contributions and experience to prevent advancement.
