San Bernardino Age Discrimination Attorneys Serving Employees Across All Of Southern California
Age discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) less favorably because of his or her age. The law forbids discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.
People live longer today and often work past retirement either part time or full time depending on their needs and income. Older workers offer companies the benefit of their wisdom and experience. All too often, however, businesses view older employees as an unnecessary cost, and will terminate older employees on the basis of their age. Individuals who are age 40, and above, have rights under Federal and State laws.
If you have reason to believe you were wrongfully fired, demoted, harassed or the victim of some type of adverse employment action due to your age, you need a lawyer immediately. We are the attorneys of SANFORD A. KASSEL, A Professional Law Corporation, in San Bernardino. We are ready to help you protect your rights.
Defending The Rights Of Employees In Age Discrimination Claims
Our law firm values experience. In fact, Sanford A. Kassel has practiced law for more than 34 years. Over this time he has dedicated his practice and career to vindicating his clients’ rights. Sanford A. Kassel is joined by his son, Gavin P. Kassel, who continues a more than 50-year family legacy of legal practice in San Bernardino.
According to the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), employers, employment agencies and unions cannot discriminate against anyone because of his or her age. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) offers similar protections under Federal Law. We understand that employers are extremely unlikely to admit to discriminating against their employees. Therefore, it is important to conduct a comprehensive investigation into the facts of the case in order to prove discriminatory conduct.
Our lawyers have the experience necessary to find all evidence of discrimination. Once we have this evidence in hand, we will demand appropriate damages from your employers. These damages can include back pay, payment of reasonable attorney’s fees and costs and reinstatement. In the event your employer will not agree to our requests, we will not hesitate to bring your case to trial.
