What are some signs of age discrimination at work?
Age discrimination in the workplace can take many forms. Generally, if older workers are being treated less favorably than younger employees, it can indicate age discrimination. Common signs of age discrimination include supervisors making inappropriate comments about your age or constantly urging you to retire.
If your workplace has employment policies that have a negative and disparate impact on older employees, it may be a sign of age discrimination unless the company proves they are not based on age. A business may have a pattern of firing older workers and replacing them with younger hires that are less costly.
There are many other ways that age discrimination can manifest. If you suspect you are experiencing age discrimination at work, make sure you document all the signs and instances you come across. Discuss your situation with an employment lawyer to determine if you have a legal claim for age discrimination.
