New York City Age Discrimination Attorney
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 was intended to prevent employers from using employees' ages as a pretext to limit opportunities for workers over 40. If you believe you were targeted with wrongful termination in the form of age discrimination in Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan or anywhere in New York City, contact the Law Office of John M. Lambros.
Specifically, the ADEA prohibits age discrimination in the workplace as follows:
(a) It shall be unlawful for an employer-
(1) to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual or otherwise discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individual's age;
(2) to limit, segregate, or classify his employees in any way which would deprive or tend to deprive any individual of employment opportunities or otherwise adversely affect his status as an employee, because of such individual's age; or
(3) to reduce the wage rate of any employee in order to comply with this chapter.
(b) It shall be unlawful for an employment agency to fail or refuse to refer for employment, or otherwise to discriminate against, any individual because of such individual's age, or to classify or refer for employment any individual on the basis of such individual's age.
If you believe you are a victim of unfair firing or were offered an unjust severance package because of a corporate downsizing or other reduction in workforce or "reorganization" at your workplace, discuss the facts of your case with Attorney John M. Lambros. Learn how to bring your age discrimination matter to the attention of the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). Explore the possibility of a wrongful termination lawsuit.
