Fired Over Your Age?

Experienced & Aggressive Age Discrimination Attorneys in Los Angeles

Los Angeles Age Discrimination Lawyer

Unfortunately, age discrimination is still prevalent in today’s workplace. Being discriminated against because of your age can be a horribly demoralizing and degrading experience that no one should suffer.

It is also unlawful for employers to allow a hostile work environment where employees are subject to actions, jokes, or comments based on their age. Moreover, employers cannot retaliate against an employee for reporting or complaining about such discrimination.

If you or someone you know has been discriminated against due to their age in Los Angeles or Southern California, please contact us for a free consultation.

Emanuel Shirazi went above and beyond on my case. My employer treated me so unfairly and I felt like I had no where to turn. I met with Emanuel and he told me: I’ve got your back. This guy is a pit bull who never stops fighting for his clients. So glad he was on my side and not vice versa. Trust me, Emanuel won’t let you down.

Case Focus: ML

ML - Age Discrimination Law case Study

ML was an excellent and hard-working employee in her 60’s.  Towards the end of her employment, management made a series of negative comments relating to her age and disability in an attempt to get her to quit her employment. These comments were of the nature that ML was too old (“can’t teach an old dog new tricks”, “too old to do x”) and that she had too many health issues to be working (“should think about retirement.”)

ML refused to quit.  Her employer then fired ML, replacing her with someone in their 20’s—almost 40 years younger. The Company also fired other older employees around the same time.  ML suffered severe emotional distress as a result of this discrimination, devastating career loss, and inability to find similar employment.
