Age Discrimination and Harassment

Cleveland Age Discrimination Lawyers

Older workers bring a great deal of experience and knowledge to their jobs. However, despite their proven ability and commitment to their jobs, many employees over the age of 40 are finding themselves the victims “laid-off,”, “down-sized,” terminated, or “re-organized” out of their jobs. If you believe you have been wrongfully terminated, wrongfully disciplined, or passed over for a promotion because of your age, you may be able to pursue an age discrimination claim against your employer.

What if my employer terminated me because I earn too much money?

In today’s difficult economy, many employers are letting go of older, high-earning employees to cut costs. Though it is not against the law for employers to terminate or lay-off employees because they are highly paid, when a large percentage of the terminated or laid off employees are over the age of 40, age may have been a factor in the decision.

If you are 40 or older and have been laid off due to a reorganization, passed over for a promotion that was given to a younger, lesser qualified employee, or your employer has suddenly imposed an education or physical requirement that you cannot meet, our experienced Cleveland age discrimination attorneys can determine if you have a viable claim.
