You Can Do Your Job as Well as a Younger Person
Many people over 40 years old find themselves being laid off or fired at a higher rate than younger colleagues. Employers may do this in an attempt to lower their payroll or health care costs. Age discrimination can be very subtle and occur as part of a larger company reorganization. Our New York attorneys can help you determine if you are a victim of age discrimination.
The law firm of Shulman Kessler has years of experience in representing clients for all forms of discrimination. We have seen employers lose sight of the value of older, more seasoned employees in an effort to cut costs by hiring less experienced individuals. Our firm exclusively represents employees, helping them enforce their rights under the law.
