Age Discrimination Lawyers
Have you just experienced a layoff and realize that you and all the other employees who were let go are over 40? Are younger, less qualified and less experienced co-workers offered better assignments, projects or leads, while you and other workers over 40 are assigned more tedious tasks and excluded from important meetings and opportunities? These are some examples of possible age discrimination and you don’t have to put up with it. The law provides protection against discrimination to workers over 40. The Age Discrimination lawyers atGranovsky & Sundaresh are adept at helping older workers with valid age discrimination claims.
Aggressive Age Discrimination Lawyers
The federal Age Discrimination Employment Act applies to companies who employ at least 20 workers and protects employees over 40 in the employment arena. Your employer may not base employment decisions like hiring, promotions, compensation, job assignments, training, layoff, and termination on your age, unless age is an actual qualification for your specific job position. Federal law does allow preferential treatment to older workers over younger workers. State and city age discrimination laws in New York apply to employers with at least four employees.
In 2012, 23.9% of the EEOC complaints in New York State included an age discrimination claim. This represents 4% of all EEOC age discrimination charges filed in the U.S, and the rate has remained almost steady since 2010.
