Your Experience Should Be Respected
You have spent years building your career, but the very experience that makes you a knowledgeable and valuable employee could also put you at risk for discrimination. While it is illegal for employers to discriminate against you because of your age, their bias against you could still impact your ability to get a job and your ability to advance in the job that you have.
At The Murphy Law Practice, PLLC, I have spent years working to serve the workers of Houston and the surrounding areas in Texas. You deserve to be treated fairly as an employee at any age, and I will fight to right the wrongs you may have suffered. I will work to make your voice heard, and I will fight for your employment law case in the courtroom if necessary.
Discrimination Based On Age
The law forbids discrimination against employees over 40 years old because of their age, but that legal protection sometimes needs to be defended. Age discrimination takes many forms, including:
- Difficulty getting hired for positions due to age
- Lack of promotions
- Lack of meaningful tasks
- Layoffs that disproportionately impact older employees
- Poor performance reviews linked to your age.
If you are over 40 years old and have experienced age discrimination, you have the right to fight back. You could be eligible for compensation for lost wages, reinstatement of your job and other benefits, and contacting an experienced employment law attorney can be an important step in seeking that compensation.
