Age Discrimination and Wrongful Termination

A common example of age discrimination is cutting employees who are over the age of 40. These employees are experienced and may have been with the company for a long time. Thus, they require more resources, higher pay and increased benefits. When a company makes job cuts, it may claim other reasons, but look around — who are the employees being cut? Did the company hire a younger, less-experienced worker in the former employee's place?

These actions may be valid discrimination claims. We will work hard to understand your situation and can help you fight back against your employer.

Types of Age Discrimination

In addition to wrongful discharge or termination, employers are prohibited from refusing to hire, promote or make reasonable accommodations for older employees. In addition, employees cannot be denied benefits or certain job responsibilities because of their age. If you are a victim of age discrimination, Mr. Arruebarrena is a tough legal advocate who is committed to obtaining a favorable outcome on your behalf.
