Age Discrimination

Age Discrimination Lawyers serving Los Angeles, Orange and the Inland Empire

In California, it is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against an employee based on age if the employee is over the age of 40 years. If you are convinced that you have been unfairly treated because of your age, you need an experienced and knowledgeable age discrimination defense lawyer by your side.

Older employees often contribute more experience, knowledge, and competency to the workplace. However, out of ignorance to the real value of more mature employees, some employers use age discrimination tactics against both older job seekers and older employees. Employers are often motivated by mistaken ideas that older employees may not remain with the company long term, or may have greater medical expenses which might them impact the costs of group medical insurance for those employers who have medical plans.

We fight aggressively for those discriminated against for their age!

These misinformed employers sometimes make discriminatory and illegal decisions that unfairly prejudice older workers. The Employment attorneys at Vincent W. Davis & Associates cater to clients in Southern California including Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties and are expert in employment law including age discrimination. We will fight aggressively to preserve your legal rights.

How do I know I’ve been discriminated against based on my age?

Let’s get real. Most employers just don’t come out and tell you they are illegally discriminating against you because of your age. The courts know this. The courts will be open to look to circumstantial evidence to find age discrimination by weighing all the facts involved and comparing what happened to you with what happened to comparable younger workers. Clever employers will often attempt to camouflage their illegal actions by blaming non-age related factors such as corporate downsizing, reductions in the workforce, or reorganization for their illegal actions. Because you are right in the thick of it and witnessing events on a daily basis, you may easily recognize age discrimination when your employer takes such adverse employment action because of your age while similar-level, but younger, employees were treated far differently and more favorably.

U.S. Federal Law Provides Age Discrimination Protections

According to the U.S Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Age Discrimination Law forbids discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including:

  • hiring
  • firing
  • demotion
  • suspension
  • wrongful termination
  • pay

  • job assignments
  • promotions
  • layoff
  • training
  • fringe benefits
  • any other term or condition of employment

California State Law Provides Age Discrimination Protections

State law also protects workers from employment discrimination based solely upon age. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act specifically protects people over age forty from discriminatory hiring practices and employment decisions made by employers based on age discrimination.

The Age Discrimination Attorneys at Vincent W. Davis & Associates know the employment laws and can help you understand how they apply to you and your situation. Besides a thorough understanding of age discrimination in the workplace, our attorneys also understand the corresponding and similar discrimination issues involved when age discrimination is used to minimize or terminate pension plans and reduce other benefits.
