Age discrimination is illegal under Pennsylvania and federal law.  To bring a claim for age discrimination, you must be at least forty (40) years old. 

Age discrimination occurs when an employee is fired, demoted, not hired, or denied a promotion because of his or her age.  This includes when employers take an action against an employee because of assumptions about how people of a certain age group behave, or when they typically retire. 

When an employer undergoes a reduction in force and needs to lay people off, sometimes they choose older employees first.  If you have been offered a severance agreement following a layoff for a reduction in force, it is important to have an attorney review that severance agreement before you sign it. The Older Workers Benefits Protection Act contains several requirements for a waiver of age discrimination rights to be enforceable.

If you believe you have been a victim of age discrimination, contact an age discrimination lawyer at Elzer Law Firm, LLC today for a free consultation.
