Don’t be fooled by the news on low unemployment rates or the so-called “labor” shortage. As headlined by Probublica in its recent article “If You’re Over 50, Chances Are the Decision to Leave a Job Won’t be Yours,” new data analysis shows that more than half of older U.S. workers are pushed out of longtime jobs before they choose to retire, suffering financial damage that is often irreversible.
Age-discrimination law was only a minor part of the article, but it importantly and concisely noted that:
The law does not make it easy to prove age discrimination, but it is not impossible. The key is developing the evidence early-on through a well-thought-out strategy and not backing down because or employer tactics of stonewalling and deceit.
The lawyers at Lebau & Neuworth fight for the rights of all workers, including those who have been discriminated against because of their age. If you feel you have suffered from age discrimination in the workplace, we welcome your inquiries at 888-456-2529 or lebauneuworth.com/contact-us.
