Don’t Tolerate Discrimination Based On Age
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) at the federal level and Chapter 21 of the Texas Labor Code both prohibit discrimination against workers over age 40 in the workplace. If you believe you have experienced such offenses, you are doing the right thing by looking for legal advice.
At Poncio Law Offices, P.C., we often hear from employees and job applicants in the San Antonio region and elsewhere in Texas after they have not been hired or have been fired, possibly because of their age over 40. Attorney John Poncio is double board certified in employment law and civil litigation in Texas. Between them, both of our lawyers have decades of experience. We are ready to evaluate your case.
Examples Of Age Discrimination At Work
You may have observed or experienced age discrimination such as the following in a workplace or by an employer in Texas:
- Job advertising that cites young ages as criteria for work
- Hiring only workers under age 40
- Demoting older workers or passing them by for committee work, promotions or other
- Terminating workers only because of their age
In addition, it is illegal for employers to penalize employees for raising questions about apparent age discrimination. For example, was a group of your colleagues asked to give a presentation at a corporate meeting and you were left out although your involvement and knowledge of the issues were the same or more advanced than your colleagues’ qualifications?
