Do You Have a Claim?
Unfortunately, not everything that is unfair in the workplace is illegal. There are many reasons why you may not have been hired or promoted, have been treated unfairly at work, or may have even been terminated that are clearly unfair but do not involve unlawful age discrimination. In order for you to have an age discrimination claim, the wrongful conduct must have been motivated by, or a cover for, discrimination against you because you are age forty or older.
THE THREE WAYS AGE DISCRIMINATION AGAINST WORKING BABY BOOMERS RAISES ITS UGLY HEAD IN THE WORKPLACE
- YOU ARE REQUIRED TO WORK IN A HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT
You are Treated Badly in the Workplace, despite your good performance and longevity, as part of a plan to try to force you to quit or retire or to build a false record of poor performance to justify firing you – because of age discrimination.
- YOU ARE TERMINATED DURING A REDUCTION IN FORCE OR FIRED ON FALSE GROUNDS
You are Selected for Termination During a Reduction in Force instead of younger, less qualified employees or Terminated on False Grounds – because of age discrimination.
- YOU ARE DENIED A PROMOTION OR HIRE
You are Denied a Promotion into a position you are the best qualified candidate to fill or Denied Hire into a position you applied for despite your extensive experience and excellent qualifications – because of age discrimination.
