Have your managers or peers made comments at work about your age?
Do you feel as though your company is “setting you up” for termination or early retirement so it can make room for younger employees?
Did your employer terminate you and then replace you with a less qualifed younger employee?
Madia Law Represents Victims of Age Discrimination
If you answered “yes” to any one of the above questions, Madia Law can help. I’ve fought – and won – discrimination lawsuits on behalf of individuals against some of the biggest corporations in the country.
Both the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and the Minnesota Human Rights Act make it illegal for employers to discriminate based on age when it comes to promotions, wages, discipline, suspensions, or terminations. Some employers – knowing that age discrimination is illegal – will try to get rid of older employees by “papering” their file with nitpicking and made up disciplinary incidents. That’s illegal – you have the right to work in Minnesota regardless of your age.
Age discrimination also includes harassment – such as offensive remarks – at work about an employee’s age. This harassment is illegal when it results in a hostile work environment. These kinds of comments are prohibited from anybody, including peers, supervisors, or managers.
You May Be Entitled to Lost Wages, Job Reinstatement, Liquidated Damages, and Attorney Fees
If you have been the victim of age discrimination at work, you may be entitled to back pay and front pay damages, reinstatement to your job, liquidated damages under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and your attorney fees and costs.
