It is against Texas, California, and federal laws to fire, refuse to hire, or discriminate an employee in any way based on their age. Although these laws protect individuals who are 40 years or older from discrimination or termination, this injustice still happens all the time. Mandatory retirement can exist for limited job categories, such as airline pilots and certain C-Suite jobs. If you are concerned that termination of employment is potentially motivated by age discrimination, or need to know how to respond to a government agency investigation of age discrimination, contact Attorney Janovsky for a consultation.

Janovsky & Associates is a highly respected DFW law firm that has helped individuals who have been wrongfully discriminated against seek retribution, represented countless individuals, and worked hard to recover settlements and damages for their suffering.

● A systematic stereotyping of and discrimination against people because they are old, just as racism and sexism accomplish this with skin color and gender

Attorney Janovsky has worked with clients across a wide range of industries and is prepared to do the same for you. Age discrimination is a serious problem in the workforce right now, and older employees are often viewed as a liability by employers. In many cases, older employees are at the top of their pay scale, have invested more in pension plans, and have one or more insured dependents. In an employer’s eyes, they can save a lot of money and bring in a younger, single worker to replace him or her. However, this is against the law.
