A recent post on this blog discussed a recent flurry in age discrimination lawsuits in the Silicon Valley, a place known to many Los Angeles residents as the home of high-paying jobs and laid-back company culture. It stands to reason, though, that even California companies with a good reputation might not be able to resist the temptation to let go of "aging" workers, that is, those who are over 40.
Our law office has over 45 years' experience dealing with all types of discrimination claims, including age discrimination claims. Our experience allows us to spot evidence of age discrimination even when the employee may only have a strong suspicion that a California company refused to hire her, fired her or otherwise treated her differently because of her age.
Although age discrimination cases can be difficult to spot since employers rarely are open and honest about their breaking the law, what is clear is that a victim of age discrimination is entitled to compensation. However, in order to get this compensation, it may take the legal expertise of an experienced attorney, like the legal professionals in our office, to investigate a case of discrimination and use the information gathered to put together a winning argument.
A person who has been the victim of age discrimination may find the legal and even emotional support of an experienced attorney invaluable. While obviously we cannot guarantee a favorable result in all cases, as the results depend on a number of factors, we do promise to approach every case with same level of concern that are clients obviously have about the future livelihoods.
