Older Employee Rights and Age Discrimination Claims
If you are over the age of 40, an employer cannot refuse you a promotion, cut your hours, refuse FMLA leave or fire you because of your age. One of the most common situations involving age discrimination is when employers bring in new and younger employees to replace workers who have dedicated years to the company. If you complain or report the discrimination, the employer may even show forms of retaliation. If that happens, it is imperative you speak to a lawyer.
