What Is Considered Age Discrimination?

Age discrimination occurs when an individual 40 years of age or older experiences an adverse employment accident, such as getting fired, being demoted, or getting their hours or duties reduced. It can also happen during the hiring process if employers advertise only for younger employees, screen out workers whose resumes reveal that they are older, or use hiring criteria that implies an age limit. Furthermore, employers must offer older workers benefits that are equal to benefits provided to younger employees under the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA).

To file an age discrimination case, a plaintiff must prove the following:

  • He/she was 40 years older or older
  • He/she was qualified for the job
  • He/she experienced an adverse employment action
  • He/she was replaced by someone significantly younger

Prior to filing an age discrimination complaint, it is imperative to gather as much evidence as you can to strengthen your case. To file an EEOC charge, you need to submit information about the alleged discrimination either in person or in a signed letter. Our New York employment litigation attorneys can help you navigate the complexities of your case and the legal system.
