The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 forbids employers from wrongfully terminating or taking any other action against an employee solely because of the employee's age. If your employer has violated this act, the Houston age discrimination lawyers at Kennard Law, P.C., will stand up for your rights.
The Challenges Of Age Discrimination Claims
Employers will often fight back in age discrimination and all other workplace discrimination claims. They will say that the elderly employee was no longer able to do his or her job. They will say that error rates have increased. In reality, they may simply want to stop paying the higher wages that long-term employees often earn in favor of younger, new employees who will start at lower wages. When we find evidence of age discrimination, we will take action.
Age discrimination claims can be challenging; however, our attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation. Not surprisingly, we often discover that ageism is institutionalized. For example, the employer may have a record of wrongfully terminating employees of a certain age. When we discover this, it is substantial proof to back up our claim.
