Dallas Age Discrimination Lawyer
Age discrimination is prohibited by state and federal law and consists of discriminating against an employee, 40 years of age or older, because of their age. Typical cases involve the discharge, layoff, refusal to hire or refusal to promote a person forty years of age or older under circumstances that suggest that age was a reason for the employer’s decision. This typically but not necessarily involves the identification of a substantially younger employee or applicant who was treated more favorably under similar circumstances.
A person wishing to explore a claim of age discrimination should do so promptly. There are administrative filing requirements that must be met or the right to relief will be lost. If you believe you may have been the victim of age discrimination you should seek legal counsel promptly.
