Aggressive Representation For Victims Of Age Discrimination
Workers over 40 years old are 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. This is called age discrimination and it can be very subtle and hidden as part of a larger company reorganization.
Older employees bring value to the workplace. It is unfortunate that many employers put cost-cutting over experience.
At Kessler Matura P.C. , our attorneys have years of experience representing employees in all forms of discrimination, including that based on age, helping them enforce their rights under the law.
Protecting Your Rights As An Employee
Federal and New York state laws prohibit employers from discriminating against employees because of their age. This form of discrimination can include:
- Not hiring an individual because of his or her age
- Firing or laying off an individual because of his or her age
- Not promoting an individual because of his or her age
- Excluding older employees from activities, additional training, seminars or conferences
