Age discrimination can take many forms.

Learn To Spot Age Discrimination with Employment Discrimination Lawyers

Some aspects of age discrimination have become so cemented in our everyday cultural biases that we may not even realize which actions constitute age discrimination. Many victims of such discrimination dismiss that they even have a case to begin with based on these cultural biases they are so accustomed to. That’s why Mark J. Berkowitz P.A. is here with a list of what to look out for.

Examples of Age-Based Discrimination In The Workplace:

  • Age-related comments or jokes
  • Favoritism of younger employees
  • Promotion of only younger employees
  • Disciplining of only older employees
  • Hiring decisions based solely on age (including patterns of hiring only younger workers)
  • Laying off older workers who are more qualified in favor of younger (less qualified) workers
  • Sudden negative performance reviews following a birthday

These examples are just the tip of the iceberg. Age discrimination can come from many angles, in many different ways.

It’s also important to note can happen between a wide variety of parties. Most people think of a younger employer discriminating against an older employee, but this is not always the case. The two parties may be around the same age, or even older than the victim. Age discrimination can be perpetrated by any age.

Uncertain situations like these are one of the many reasons it’s important to have an age discrimination lawyer, like Mark J. Berkowitz, on your side.
