You work hard to achieve your professional goals and invest several years at a company. The company suddenly wants a change in staff with a younger appeal. Age discrimination is a serious issue and despite laws prohibiting age discrimination, it continues to happen throughout California. The attorneys at JML Law, A Professional Law Corporation, in Woodland Hills will stand up for your rights and help you take legal action against your employer after being a victim of age discrimination.
Fired for age discrimination? You have rights. Call us at 818-835-5735 to discuss your legal options.
Age discrimination can come in many forms. Older workers may be left out of meetings, be the subject of jokes or harassment, receive poor performance reviews, not receive adequate training and ultimately be fired or laid off.
Comments from upper management that the “company needs a fresh start,” “we need to recruit young, aggressive employees,” or “we need young blood” can be signs of age discrimination. These comments should raise an alarm especially for older employees. You should take note of these comments, who said them and when the incident occurred. This will help you during a discrimination lawsuit.
Employers will give a variety of other reasons for letting an older employee go. That is why it is vital to document any instances of discrimination at work and to contact us right away if you are being mistreated at work or have been fired because of your age.
Once you contact us, we will start helping you right away. If you are still employed, we will write a letter to your employer notifying them of the discrimination. If you have been fired, we will demand that your employer preserve all evidence of your employment and request your personnel file for review.
We will guide you through your legal options and review all evidence to build a strong case. You have rights as an employee, and you do not deserve to be mistreated because of your age.
