Age discrimination in Pasadena is illegal

We want you to know that age discrimination can be hard to detect in the workplace. This is because supervisors and employers know that such discrimination is illegal and will never say that they are acting due to a workers age.

  • Most cases of workplace age discrimination are not reported, but an AARP report tells us that nearly two-thirds of workers over the age of 45 have seen or experienced workplace age discrimination.

Both the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and the California Fair Housing and Employment Act (FEHA) protect older workers in this state.

What does age discrimination look like?

  • The EEOC says that age discrimination involves “treating an applicant or employee less favorably because of his or her age.”

We realize that this type of discrimination shows up in various forms and can include actions when a person is trying to get hired as well as when they are on-the-job.

  • Being fired or laid off due to age
  • Being pressured by supervisors to quit or retire
  • Not getting hired at all due to age
  • Being harassed with constant insults or remarks about age
  • Being offered less pay, benefits, or job assignments due to age

The EEOC says that older workers face the longest period of unemployment of any age groups when they are looking for a new job.

You cannot be retaliated against for making a claim

The law protects workers who make complaints to their supervisors or to human resources about younger employees being favored over older employees or asking older employees to retire. An employer cannot retaliate against an employee for making such a claim, even if it is discovered that there was no age discrimination present.
