Age discrimination in the workplace is a serious issue and is prohibited by federal and state laws. If you believe that you are being discriminated against at work because of your age, there are several steps you can take to protect your rights.
The first step is to document any instances of discrimination that you have experienced. This includes keeping a record of any offensive or discriminatory comments, any changes in your job duties or responsibilities, and any other relevant information.
It is also important to report the discrimination to your employer and to follow your employer’s internal complaint procedures.
If the discrimination continues or if your employer fails to take appropriate action, you can file a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or your state’s labor department. An experienced elder law attorney can help you navigate the complaint process and advise you on your rights and options. They can also assist you in filing a lawsuit against your employer if necessary. It’s essential to act promptly as there are strict deadlines for filing complaints and charges of discrimination.
