Age Discrimination

New York and Connecticut Employment Law Attorneys

BLG’s employment lawyers represent victims of age discrimination in the workplace. Whether through counseling, negotiation or litigation, we provide victims of age discrimination with a sound strategy for addressing their workplace concerns and protecting their rights.

Federal, state and local laws prohibits employers from discriminating against job applicants or employees on the basis of age. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) forbids discrimination against people who are age 40 or older because of their age.

The law prohibits age discrimination in any aspect of employment, including:

  • Hiring
  • Firing
  • Pay
  • Job Assignments
  • Promotions
  • Layoffs
  • Training
  • Benefits, and Any Other Term or Condition of Employment

It is also unlawful for employers to include age limitations in job postings or advertisements, or to use age as a consideration for admission into apprenticeship programs.

If you believe you have been the victim of age discrimination in the workplace, contact The Boyd Law Group, PLLC at (800) 617-4254 or fill out our online Contact Us form to schedule a free case evaluation with an experienced age discrimination attorney to discuss your rights and legal options.

Client Reviews
I am writing to give my highest possible recommendation for Patrick Boyd and his team at The Boyd Law Group. Originally, Patrick came highly recommended. I had the distinct pleasure of working with Patrick and his team and successfully leveraging their significant experience. Patrick’s exceptional expertise, his thoughtful, deep, logical, and pragmatic approach along with the comprehensive execution of his team are truly unique! On my behalf, Patrick was engaged in non-trivial and lengthy negotiations, which resulted in a successful outcome. He was honest, warm, and very upfront with me at the very beginning and explained to me that It would be a very long and bumpy road, and that I basically have two choices. First was to agree with my current conditions, which wasn't acceptable for my family. The second choice required me to buckle up and be as calm and as emotionless as possible for a long time, which wasn’t always easy. Nevertheless, Patrick succeeded with getting the absolute majority of my needs met and was able to close the whole deal to my complete satisfaction. Overall, my entire work with Patrick and his team exceeded my initial, high expectations, and I still continue working with him to this date. Patrick is a truly unique expert and person, and I wholeheartedly recommend talking to him regarding your employment law related needs.
