There are federal and state laws that protect qualified employees from age discrimination. You must be 40 years or older to be covered. You cannot be treated differently simply because of your age. We serve all of Southern California, particularly Orange County and Los Angeles County.
Oftentimes, employers will not only discriminate against you because of your age but also because of health issues associated with your age. If so, you may also have a claim for disability discrimination, failure to provide reasonable accommodations and failure to engage in a timely, good faith interactive process.
There usually won't be a smoking gun we can use to prove your case easily, and that's ok. Most age discrimination cases are subtle and we have to prove it circumstantially with witnesses and how you were treated as compared to others. We have been Wrongful Termination lawyers and Employment Law attorneys since 1997.
We specialize in age discrimination cases. As wrongful termination lawyers and employment law attorneys, we have meeting locations throughout Southern California, particularly Orange County and Los Angeles County. Same day appointments available in Irvine and Long Beach.
