Are you 40 years or older? Believe it or not – you fall in a group of individuals that our law-makers felt it was important to protect. Workplace age discrimination is prohibited under federal law. You may not feel, look, or act your age, but that doesn’t preclude you from protection!
Simply, the older you get – the more likely it is you tend to be in higher paid position and/or are eligible for all employer’s benefits. As a result, you have a tendency to be expensive (like a fine wine or bourbon).
Quite simply, older folks tend to be more expensive to have on the payroll. As a result, employment decisions are often made specifically related to an employee’s age. However, employment decisions made based upon your age are against federal laws.
Thankfully, there are laws and rules against such practices including federal laws related to Age Discrimination in Employment. Sometimes the discrimination is right in your face; clear as day, your employer very clearly discriminated against you because of your age. However, sometimes the discrimination is much more subtle.
Examples of Workplace Age Discrimination:
This can include holding you to a higher standard that your colleagues or applying different rules against you. As such, age discrimination is not always easy to identify.
Don’t be a victim of workplace age discrimination. Age and experience are badges of honor! Therefore, give Thomson Dunkel a call if you have suffered workplace age discrimination.
