While a previous post discussed the warning signs of age discrimination, the first time some employees over 40 in Los Angeles, California, might realize something is amiss is when they get handed a pink slip along with what seems to them like a flimsy excuse for being fired or laid off.
Right after being treated in this way, an employee may not know to whom they can turn for help. After all, they still have to figure out how they are going to support themselves until they get another job, and they no doubt want to get started looking for new employment right away.
At the same time, they may wish to or even feel the need to send a message to their former employer that age discrimination, even if it is veiled under the excuse of cutting costs or improving company culture, is both wrong and illegal.
Our law office has built up its employment law practice around representing the rights of employees, including those who are protected by state and federal laws prohibiting age discrimination.
We have in the past successfully stood up even to California's largest, most powerful corporations in an effort to get our clients the justice they deserved, and our commitment is always first and foremost to getting our client's the best legal outcome possible in their case.
If you feel you were let go or otherwise treated poorly at work because of your age, it may pay off to entrust us with defending your rights so you can focus on moving on with your life.
