Age

As the age of our workforce increases, so too does discrimination against older workers. California law protects most employees 40 years of age and older from employment discrimination, harassment, and retaliation for complaining about age discrimination or harassment.

Age discrimination comes in many forms. Some examples of unlawful age discrimination include terminating an older employee in order to replace him with an equally or less qualified significantly younger worker, giving less or equally qualified younger workers greater opportunity for advancement in a company, laying off a disproportionate number of higher paid older employees where there is no overriding legitimate business purpose for doing so, and terminating older employees because the company “needs new blood” or to avoid paying retirement or more costly insurance benefits.

If you believe you may have been discriminated against, harassed, or terminated because of your age, or your employer is retaliating against you for complaining about age discrimination or harassment, you need employment law specialists on your side. Sarnoff + Sarnoff is committed to advancing employee rights and bringing to justice any employer that engages in, encourages, or fails to prevent discrimination, harassment, or retaliation in the workplace.
