Various state and federal statutes prohibit employers from discriminating against employees based on their age. Discrimination might include failure to consider an older employee for a promotion in favor of a younger, less qualified employee. It also includes circumstances where an older employee is terminated because the employer would rather have younger employees as the face of the company.
State and federal statutes impose tight deadlines for making required filings with organizations like the equal employment opportunity commission if an employee feels that they have been discriminated against based on their age. It is imperative that you contact an attorney as soon as you have suffered an adverse employment action based on your age.
