Premier New York Age Discrimination Attorneys Take on Employers that Discriminate Based on Maturity


Protecting hardworking, skillful employees from age discrimination

Age discrimination impacts the majority of Americans over the age of 50 at some point in their careers. Employers that hold a person’s age against them violate both New York State and Federal anti-discrimination laws. At Hepworth, Gershbaum & Roth, PLLC, our New York City employee rights attorneys have decades of experience representing age discrimination victims. We have committed our careers to protecting the rights of employees in New York and throughout the country.

How do you know if you have been the victim of age discrimination by an employer in New York?

Age discrimination is seldom overt. It usually manifests itself subtly. Our NYC employee rights attorneys have become extremely skillful at picking up on the signs that age discrimination has occurred. We know where to spot the signs and which evidence to introduce to the court to recover the compensation you deserve. The most common signs of age discrimination in New York include:

  • Putting pressure on older employees to retire early

  • Threatens to terminate or reduce benefits for not retiring early

  • Forced early retirement

  • Laying off only older employees

  • Not hiring older applicants

  • Subtle comments about wanting fresh faces around the office

  • Promoting younger, more inexperienced employees over older, more experienced employees

  • Offering  fewer opportunities to older employees

  • Bosses only inviting younger employees to socialize

  • Not allowing older employees to attend training classes or programs

  • Giving poor performance reviews

  • Hiring less-qualified employees based on their younger age

New York State law prohibits discrimination or harassment based on age

Age discrimination occurs any time that a person is harassed or held back from employment opportunities based on their age. In addition to the federal laws that protect you from age discrimination, there are also state laws in New York that extend the federal protections. The New York law protects anyone over the age of 18 that is treated differently in the workplace based on their age. Our NYC age discrimination attorneys have handled countless of these cases in both state and federal court. Part of our job is to help you decide which forum puts you in the best situation to recover compensation based on your particular circumstances.
