Standing Up for Those Discriminated Against Due to Age

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) was created in order to protect workers who are 40 years old or older from employment discrimination based on age. The protections provided by the ADEA are intended to apply to both current employees and job applicants. Under the ADEA, it is illegal to discriminate against a person due to his or her age regarding any term, condition or advantage of employment.

Unfortunately, though these laws exist, age discrimination is still all too common in the workplace. At the Hamilton Law Firm, P.C., we confidently handle employee and employer representation in age discrimination cases.

Our firm is committed to providing clients with information that can help them understand what their rights are and if it is even possible to file a claim on their behalf. Contact us today to discuss your case.

Filing A Claim For Age Discrimination

It is important to note that not all situations are age discrimination or other discrimination matters.

Just because you may be an older worker and were fired does not mean that you have a claim for age discrimination.

These cases take time to put together and litigate. We strive to help clients understand the terms of their dismissal and can handle any aspects of the case that may constitute wrongful termination because of age.

Getting Asked Pre-Employment Age Questions

The ADEA does not prohibit an employer from asking a potential employee's date of birth or age. These requests are closely monitored by overseeing federal groups in order to ensure that applicants are being asked their ages and birth dates for a lawful purpose rather than for other reasons, such as age discrimination. Many employers require a birth date in order to complete a background check, but use the information for these purposes only.

We Can Represent Employers As Well

If you are an employer who has been accused of age discrimination, it is important that you retain legal counsel in order to protect your business. At our firm, attorney Ayesha Hamilton is a highly skilled lawyer with considerable experience handling a variety of employment law issues. When you retain her services, she will work with you to determine how best to handle the allegations, whether this means resolving matters inside or outside the courtroom.
