One of the most prevalent claims in the workplace is age discrimination, yet it’s one of the hardest to prove. The money awarded to plaintiffs is typically less than expected of those involving gender or religious discrimination and oftentimes fails as a deterrent to employers.

Age Discrimination is a form of employment discrimination that affects older workers and falls under the protection of Federal Title VII discrimination that doesn’t require the official EEOC sign-off to sue, rather claims can also be filed under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. This allows workers to prove discrimination was one of the factors in the employer’s decision to fire, discipline, transfer, demote, or even to disregard a potential employee.
