Age Discrimination

Have you been subjected to age discrimination in a Florida workplace?

Miami Age discrimination attorneys ready to defend your rights

If you believe that a Florida employer has discriminated against you on the basis of age, you may have a valid claim under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA). The ADEA protects individuals who are 40 years of age or older from employment discrimination based upon age and it is interesting to note that the ADEA's protections apply to both employees and job applicants. Under the ADEA, it is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against a person because of his or her age with respect to any privilege of employment including hiring, firing, promotion, layoff, compensation, benefits, job assignments and training.

If you have good reason to believe that your employer has discriminated against you because of your age and you wish to file a lawsuit to defend your rights as an individual, you should contact the Miami Law Office of Pelayo Duran to arrange a free legal consultation. Perhaps you have experienced retaliatory acts in your workplace because you opposed employment practices that discriminate against you based on age. If you have been placed at a disadvantage by your employer because you filed an age discrimination charge, testified about age discrimination, or participated in an ADEA proceeding, your employer can also be held responsible. Such retaliatory behavior against an individual is also prohibited by the ADEA.

If you are in either of these situations, you can seek help from The Law Office of Pelayo Duran.

How will I know if I have a valid claim for age discrimination?

Our Miami age discrimination attorneys will listen to the facts of your case and assess the validity of your claim. The provisions of the ADEA apply to employers with 20 or more employees. Employers subject to the ADEA include state and local government departments, agencies and labor organizations.

Under the terms of the ADEA, it is generally unlawful to include age preferences in job notices or advertisements. In addition to this, the ADEA does not specifically prohibit an employer from asking an applicant's age or date of birth, but such requests for age information are closely scrutinized to make sure that the inquiry was made for a lawful purpose, rather than for a purpose prohibited by the ADEA.

If you are the victim of age discrimination, take the first step today. Contact the Law Office of Pelayo Duran to arrange a free legal consultation with our Miami legal team of highly qualified age discrimination attorneys.
