Michigan Age Discrimination Lawyer

Have you been discriminated against because of your age? If so contact the Law Offices of Christopher Trainor & Associates now at 248-886-8650 immediately so that we can help you protect your rights. If you are over the age of 40, you are in a protected class under federal and state law and cannot be discriminated against.

Age discrimination is the stereotyping and/or prejudice against an individual or group because of their age. It generally refers to discrimination against older workers but it can be directed toward younger people as well.

Some forms of age discrimination include but are not limited to:

  • Making direct comments about your age
  • Denying you a job due to your age
  • Being replaced by a younger worker
  • Being terminated or laid off because of your age
  • Being retaliated against for complaining about being treated unfairly because of your age

Your job may have been adversely, unlawfully or unfairly affected in the following manner:

  • Hostile work environment
  • Cutting your hours or benefits
  • Changing your hours
  • Changing your job duties
  • Demotions
  • Not getting a promotion you deserve
  • Harassment

While older workers usually demand higher wages due to experience, they may also be discriminated against for that same reason or just because they might be viewed less productive because of their age. Just as younger workers face barriers in promotions and hiring due to the fact that they may be viewed as less dependable because of their age. That double-edged sword can cut in either direction for either group and that bias is classified as age discrimination and it is unfounded and against the law.
