Axis Legal Counsel has been retained by a worker wrongfully terminated in an age discrimination dispute.
Age Discrimination occurs when an employee is treated someone differently and less favorably because of their age. Age discrimination is prohibited by the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) as well as California’s Fair Employment and Housing laws. Discrimination is prohibited in any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoffs, training, fringe benefits, or any other aspect of employment. Harrassment on the basis of age is also unlawful. Harassment can include offensive remarks about age that are so frequent or severe that a hostile or offensive work environment is created, or when it results in an adverse employment decision, such as being fired or demoted. Perpetrators of harassment or age discrimination can be the victim’s supervisor, another supervisor, a co-worker, or a client or customer.
