If you’re an older worker, which the law defines as over 40, and you are terminated and replaced by a younger worker, that might be age discrimination. Age discrimination is when the employer uses age stereotypes to make a decision. An employer who thinks that younger workers either work harder, or are better with technology, or more modern and able to do the work better just because of their age, that’s an employer who is breaking the law. So come see an attorney and we can help you assess that situation and determine whether your termination was age discrimination or something else.
