Scottsdale Age Discrimination Lawyer
Some jobs are understood to be suited to individuals of a certain age, and a degree of reasonable “discrimination” will be used in hiring for those jobs. For example, an incredibly fit person in his or her 50s is not likely to be chosen as a Navy SEAL. On the other hand, a brilliant 29-year-old attorney will probably not be selected as a federal judge no matter how badly he or she wants that position. Other types of age discrimination are illegal and can be resolved through litigation.
Numerous forms of age discrimination are prohibited by federal and state laws that serve to protect employees. The Arizona Civil Rights Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 provide some of the most important protections.
Protecting The Rights Of Employees Over The Age Of 40
At The Zoldan Law Group, we protect the rights of employees who have been discriminated against because they are aged 40 or older. Our Scottsdale age discrimination attorneys have taken many discrimination cases all the way to jury trial. We are aggressive about pursuing justice for employees who:
- Have been laid off because of their age
- Are dealing with the possibility of pressured or forced retirement
- Need advice regarding severance or constructive discharge
- Were wrongly cited for performance issues by their employers
- Are replaced or passed up for promotion in favor of younger, less skilled employees
We consult with and represent employees who have been discriminated against but want to remain employed by their companies, as well as employees who want a change. Regardless of what type of situation you are in, we can answer your questions about age discrimination.
