Los Angeles Age Discrimination Lawyers

San Fernando Valley Workplace Discrimination Attorneys

Employees have a right to be judged on the quality of their work. Unfortunately, many older employees find that they are subjected to false and arbitrary stereotypes. These employees find that their employers have made the unjust assumption that older employees are not able to keep pace with younger employees.

Federal and state laws prohibit employers from engaging in age discrimination. An employee may not be terminated or otherwise discriminated against regarding the terms of their employment on the basis of age. If you feel that you have been the victim of age discrimination, contact an experienced employment law attorney at Magnanimo & Dean, LLP.

Our attorneys offer more than 50 years of combined experience. As a firm concentrating in employment law, we have helped thousands of employees whose rights have been violated. All of our lawyers are former employment defense attorneys, so we know how to anticipate defenses which may be raised by opposing counsel and build strong cases for the clients we serve.

Age Discrimination Law

Both California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibit age discrimination. Employers who discriminate against an employee on the basis of age may be held liable for damages. Both the ADEA and FEHA protect workers who are 40 or older from age discrimination.

Proving age discrimination can be complex. An employer may claim that you were laid off as part of a lawful reduction in force. They may also argue that you were terminated, denied a promotion or otherwise suffered an adverse employment action due to substandard work. Because employees are often judged on subjective criteria that are difficult to quantify, proving a discriminatory motive can be highly complex.

Fortunately, our attorneys have the experience, resources and commitment to vigorously prosecute age discrimination claims. We are known for our ability to handle complex cases and our strong record of results speaks for itself. Perhaps the greatest testament to the quality of our legal services is the fact that many of our clients are referred to us by former clients and by defense attorneys who appreciate the quality of our work.

Whether your case is best resolved by a negotiated agreement or by trial, we will fight for you. We are dedicated advocates who work hard to seek the best possible outcome for each client we serve.
