Memphis Age Discrimination Attorney

Representing Wronged Workers

At Donati Law, PLLC, we have handled an increasing number of age discrimination cases since the economic recession began in 2008. Despite often long and dedicated tenures of service to their companies, employers have targeted older workers for termination in an effort to cut salaries and because of a "perceived" benefit of employing younger workers. Older workers, however, have a number of laws that guarantee certain fundamental rights and can protect them against abuse.

Understanding Age Discrimination Laws

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and similar state laws prohibit the practice of employment discrimination against older workers (i.e., those workers who are 40 years old or older). Disparate treatment cases are typical intentional discrimination cases in which a worker is targeted for discriminatory treatment on the basis of his or her age. Disparate impact cases are those in which a company has a uniformly enforced and seemingly neutral employment policy that adversely affects older workers. If you have been a victim of age discrimination, our legal team can take action on your behalf in order to achieve justice.

It is important to note that older workers because of their membership in the protected class have certain protections in cases of reductions-in-force and in cases where companies offer severance or separation agreements.
