Austin Age Discrimination Lawyer
Age discrimination is, unfortunately, one of the most common forms of discrimination in the workplace and one of the most difficult areas of employment law.
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act forbids an employer from discriminating on the basis of age. It was designed to protect workers 40 years of age or older from being discriminated against by their employer because of their age.
Age discrimination can be very subtle, so if you have feelings that your employee rights have been violated, it is wise to consult with an experienced age discrimination lawyer
Adverse employment actions, because of ones age, include but are not limited to the terminating or laying off of an employee, failing to promote an employee, and the failure to provide adequate or comparable wages and benefits to that employee.
If you were suddenly laid off, or you suffered any other adverse employment action due to your age, you may be eligible to pursue compensation for:
- Back pay
- Future lost earnings
- Emotional distress
- Punitive damages
- Attorney’s fees and costs
