Texas Age Discrimination Attorneys.
It may be easier for companies to hire a younger person for less money, but that doesn’t make it right, and that doesn’t make it legal. You may feel like you have nowhere to go after your wrongful termination, but at Loya Law, in Dallas, we protect employees who have been the victim of discrimination.
After such a significant portion of your life has been spent serving a given employer, it can be difficult to realize you have been wronged and that you should take action against them. Age discrimination is wrong. By taking action on your own behalf, you are making a statement for all people who have suffered from unjustified demotion or wrongful termination due to their age.
Age discrimination at work can take place in many different ways. Even if you are not fired, you may feel as if you are being forced out as your company makes room for younger workers, asking you to take on responsibilities they cannot expect you to handle. You deserve the chance to work and move within your company based on the merits of your work. We protect age discrimination victims in a variety of cases:
- Wrongful termination
- Unjustified demotion
- Refusal to hire
Age Discrimination Employment Act
Every employee has rights, and there are laws protecting employees from discriminatory practices based on age. The Age Discrimination Employment Act (ADEA) protects workers over the age of forty. At Loya Law, we can help you take action against an employer under the ADEA.
You may not feel like you have a place to turn after you have lost the security of your job. We can help you evaluate your age discrimination claim and understand all your options. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.
