If you are over the age of 40, the law protects you from discrimination in the workplace. This means that your employer cannot fire you solely on the basis of age, only to replace you with a younger worker. Additionally, your employer cannot treat you unfairly because of your age by denying promotions or other opportunities.
If you believe you have been discriminated against at work because of your age, the attorneys at Rogan & Associates can help you. At our firm, we have extensive experience representing both employees and employers in employment cases.

Discrimination Against Older Workers
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) protects employees over the age of 40 from discrimination. This includes discrimination when hiring, firing, promoting or training, forced retirement or otherwise treating an employee differently on the basis of age.
Often, age discrimination can be difficult to detect. If you suspect you are being discriminated against based on your age, you should act quickly. Keep a record of any instances of discrimination against yourself or other older employees. Also, record any complaints you make to HR and speak with an attorney about your options.
At Rogan & Associates, we have experience handling these types of cases, and we can evaluate your claim. Our attorneys will work with you to investigate your employer's action and build your case for age discrimination. Whether you are an employee facing discrimination at work or an employer accused of discrimination, we can provide you with the skilled representation and advice you need at every stage of your case.
