In New York and the rest of the United States, it is unlawful to discriminate against or harass a person due to their age. Individuals 40 years of age or older are considered protected according to the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). Unfortunately, there have been many cases where employees are victims of employment violations disguised as layoffs, cutbacks, and other excuses.

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).
