Glendale Age Discrimination Attorneys

Protecting Clients in the Workplace

Age discrimination in the workplace is unlawful under both federal and California law. The federal law, called the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), outlaws discrimination against employees over the age of 40 in all areas of employment from hiring to firing. The California law, called the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), also prohibits employment discrimination based on age. If you believe that you have suffered age discrimination by an employer, you may have grounds for a legal claim. At Berberian Ain, LLP, our Glendale age discrimination lawyers can protect you from retaliation or harassment while we seek maximum compensation for your losses and damages.

Types of Age Discrimination

Age discrimination claims are based on unfavorable treatment by your employer due to your age.

Discrimination based on age can involve any aspect of employment including:

  • Recruitment/hiring
  • Compensation
  • Benefits
  • Job training
  • Job assignment
  • Suspensions/layoffs
  • Termination
  • Being turned down for promotion
  • Receiving negative evaluations despite good performance
  • Name calling, slurs, insults about one’s age

An example is being included in a group layoff of employees all of whom are over the age of 40 due to “downsizing.” Another example is forcing an older supervisor to retire before the age of 65 when the individual has shown exemplary work and wishes or needs to continue working.

Making a Los Angeles Age Discrimination Claim

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is empowered to enforce the ADEA. Similarly, in California, the FEHA is enforced by the state’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing. These laws also protect employees from retaliation by employers for initiating an investigation, legal procedure, or litigation claiming the existence of age discrimination.

Age discrimination claims may result in compensation for damages such as lost pay or bonuses, emotional distress, and more.
