New York Age Discrimination Attorneys
Your Age Does Not Affect Your Ability to Do Your Job
Anyone who stays in the workplace beyond the age of 40 may eventually face this form of discrimination. There is a perception that as you age, your worth goes down because of perceived lack of adaptability, expense of increased salary and benefits, growing health concerns and the desire to spend more time with your family.
In the current economy, where many people feel they won’t be able to retire until the age of 70 or who are returning to work to supplement their depleted retirement income, this is a serious issue. Older people are being forced out of the workplace through layoffs and have a much harder time getting another job, spending months or years out of work.

Where it used to be policy to lay off the most recently hired workers during downsizing, it is more common now for the older, more experienced workers to be let go in favor of employees who do not cost as much. Employers can gloss over this discrimination by claiming they had to cut the workforce and you were simply one of the unfortunate decisions. That doesn’t mean they didn’t discriminate against you because of your age.
