Age Discrimination Lawyers
Working to Get Results for Age Discrimination in the Workplace
In New York City, any kind of discrimination based on age is considered illegal and provides the victim options under the law for justice and compensation. This is not limited only to older workers who are refused advancement, employment or promotion because of their age, but also to younger workers who are unfairly targeted because of their youth.
At the law office of Philip Taubman, our attorneys take on a diverse range of plaintiff’s discrimination cases. We offer a highly experienced team of professionals who have established a proven record of success that include substantial verdicts and settlements in favor of our clients.
Taking on Cases for Older People and Youths
Federal laws under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 protect workers 40 years old and above, but do not provide protection for younger workers who may be discriminated against due to their youth. New York City and State laws step forward to provide that protection.
Our lawyers represent clients who have suffered age discrimination in cases involving:
- Hiring decisions
- Wrongful termination
- Compensation and equal pay
- Promotion and demotion
Failing to hire or advance an individual specifically because he or she is perceived as being either too young or too old is considered age discrimination and, if you are a victim, you may have a right to compensation under New York law. Our firm provides experienced representation in all cases of employment violations and discrimination.
