Age Discrimination

California has some of the strictest employment laws in the nation, preserving your right to receive fair treatment and equal benefits and protecting you from being exposed to hostile or discriminatory acts in the workplace.

Age Discrimination Comes in Many Forms

Workplace age discrimination takes many forms, both explicit and more subtle, all negatively affecting the victim’s professional and personal life. California law provides some of the strongest workplace protections in the nation but it takes an experienced attorney to help you fight for your rights.

California age discrimination laws prohibit discrimination in any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.

These are various examples of age discrimination that are prohibited by law:

  • Older workers encouraged to retire.
  • Older workers are laid off for “poor performance.”
  • Teasing about age in the workplace.
  • Hiring of younger applicants over older applicants.

Did You Know?

Age Discrimination Laws
The Federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 prohibits age discrimination in employment to workers who are 40 years of age or older.
Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
The ADEA forbids age discrimination against people who are age 40 or older. It does not protect workers under the age of 40, although some states have laws that protect younger workers from age discrimination. It is not illegal for an employer or other covered entity to favor an older worker over a younger one, even if both workers are age 40 or older.

Is It Illegal, or Just Unfair?
