New York Age Discrimination Attorneys | New York City and Long Island

The Age Discrimination Employment Act (ADEA) of 1976 specifically prohibits employment discrimination directed at anyone for being 40 years of age or older. New York State Division of Human Rights laws protect employees from age discrimination even if they are younger than 40 years of age. The New York Age Discrimination Attorneys at Leeds Brown Law, P.C. work to protect employees who have been discriminated against because of their age under the ADEA.

If you have been discriminated against in the workplace or have questions regarding the ADEA, our experienced New  York Age Discrimination Attorneys can help you protect your employee rights, legal interests, and career. Everyone should have the option to retire, but retirement should not be forced upon you when you are still capable and willing to work. Likewise, no employee should have their job taken from them simply because they are older than their potential replacement.

The New York Age Discrimination Attorneys at Leeds Brown Law, P.C. have extensive experience with age discrimination and ADEA claims. Our efforts have resulted in millions of dollars in monetary and non-monetary compensation for employees through monetary and non-monetary compensation for employees throughout New York City and Long Island.

Some Common Examples of New York Age Discrimination or Federal ADEA Claims

There are many types of actions that could constitute age discrimination or violate the ADEA. Not being hired or being fired due to age are by no means the only adverse actions that may constitute age discrimination. Other common actions that could give rise to an age discrimination or ADEA claim may include, but are not limited to:

  • Age discrimination involving termination - If you are fired because of your age, this may constitute discrimination and a violation of the ADEA or state/local laws relating to age discrimination. Our experienced New  York Age Discrimination Lawyers can work to protect your employee rights as well as your career and seek monetary and/or non-monetary damages on your behalf.
  • Age discrimination involving promotions - If you were passed over for promotion because of your age, that may constitute discrimination, and an experienced New York Age Discrimination Attorney can fight to protect your rights. Contact us today to discuss your situation in confidence.
  • Age discrimination involving benefits - If you are not receiving the same benefits as other employees because of your age, our experienced New York Age Discrimination Attorneys can aggressively pursue a claim on your behalf for age discrimination.
  • Age discrimination involving job assignments - If you feel you are being discriminated against in the assignment of your work duties because of your age, contact our New York Age Discrimination Attorneys today to discuss you situation in confidence.
  • Age discrimination involving training - If you feel you are being discriminated against in terms of training because of your age, contact our New York Age Discrimination Attorneys to discuss your situation in confidence.

If you feel you are being discriminated against at work because of your age, you may want to consider expressing your concerns both verbally and through written documentation to your employer or Human Resource representative. Your employer may fix the problem. However, if your employer fails to remedy the problem, you may have an age discrimination or ADEA claim against them. It's important that you keep records of all correspondences with your employer or Human Resource representative relative to your concerns.
