Has Your Position At Work Been Eliminated?

Are you out of work because your company said it is "restructuring" the organization? When you have put in years of hard work in your career for the company's benefit, facing a lay off from work can be devastating. If your company laid you off due to organizational issues, you may be contending with wrongful termination based on age discrimination.

It is unlawful for your employer to discriminate against older workers, however there are several subtle methods employers use to veil this type of discrimination in their terminations as well as in their hiring processes. Employers often use other reasons to hide their discriminatory actions based on your age.

If you are over 40, recently laid off, or were fully qualified but were not hired for a position, you owe it to yourself to determine whether age discrimination was a factor. Protect your rights in your career. At The Amlong Firm, we are trial lawyers who help mature professionals facing age discrimination.

When Years Of Experience Are Working Against You, We Can Help

Are you facing age-related comments at work? Are your employer or coworkers frequently asking you when you are retiring? If you are a professional aged 40 and older, comments about your mental health, your age or retirement plans could be age discrimination. Unfortunately, many older workers face staggering stereotypes, harassment and disparate treatment at work.

There are many indirect ways that employers discriminate against older workers, including:

  • Sudden and frequent job performance write ups
  • Limits on your work duties
  • Changes in your office location
  • Cuts to your work hours
  • Offers to accept early retirement incentives or be fired
  • Threats to your pension if you do not retire
  • Instituting a mandatory retirement age

When you notice you — but not your younger coworkers — are dealing with these factors in the workplace, keep a written record of these incidences, including the names of coworkers witnessing them. Your documentation will be helpful evidence for your age discrimination claim. At The Amlong Firm in Fort Lauderdale, we will help you investigate and aggressively protect your career.
