Sadly, age discrimination is a common occurrence in today’s employment industry. However, discrimination based on a variety of personal factors, including a person’s age, is illegal. If you have been discriminated against at your workplace, you have the right to pursue justice through a lawsuit. Older workers are facing increasing discrimination as employers look to younger workers to fulfill job duties. Discrimination may involve firing, demoting, refusing to hire, passing over for a promotion, and withholding employment benefits due to your age.
Factors you can use to prove age discrimination include:
- Direct and derogatory statements regarding your age
- Harassment by employers or other employees
- Being passed over for a promotion in favor a younger or newer worker
- Unexpected and sudden disciplinary actions against you, though you have a spotless record
These factors may point to age discrimination by your employers or other workers. If possible, write down every instance of discrimination, and include the date, location, and time of each instance to use in court. Furthermore, witness statements can provide valuable evidence as you seek justice.
Other more subtle instances of discrimination may involve exclusion from company meetings or group lunches and events. Favoritism shown to younger employees in the form of bigger office spaces and a higher salary could also allude to age discrimination. Whatever the case, it is important to seek the experienced assistance of employment law attorneys who can fight on your behalf to hold employers and others accountable.
