Age discrimination is when your employer treats you differently or unfairly because of your age. Typically this happens to older workers. If you’re over the age of 40, you are at the beginning of the protected age category. If your employer terminates you because of your age, hired, retained, or promoted someone younger while they let you go or denied you consideration, you may have a discrimination claim. It’s against the law to discriminate against you because of your age. If you feel that you have been discriminated against because of your age, you should speak to an experienced employment attorney.
