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 phone consultation with an experienced age discrimination attorney to discuss your rights and legal options.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"Boyd Law Group were very supportive through the process. They worked hard and diligently from start to finish. They were very responsive and ensured I understood my rights and were there every step of the way. I can't thank both Patrick and Lorena enough for all the hard work they put in for me through this emotional process. True professionals! Thank you so much!" Lilly
★★★★★
"Patrick, Steve and the team at Boyd Law Group not only achieved a resolution that was more than fair...they were far more responsive and upfront than i would have initially expected given past experiences. They worked with me financially, and were very fair with managing my expectations. Moreover, given the group's experience, they are fair but strong negotiators, great listeners and put me, as a client, at ease. I won't think twice about approaching Boyd Law Group in the future...and recommending them to family/friends and coworkers in need of advice." Victor R.
★★★★★
