Age Discrimination

You were qualified for the position, promotion or advancement opportunity that you sought, but you were not selected. Maybe you were told that the company is moving in a different direction, or looking for young blood or new ideas. Maybe your questions about why you were not selected went unanswered. There may be a legitimate non-discriminatory reason why you were not selected, but if you are age 40 or older both federal and state law protect you from discrimination because of your age. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and The Missouri Human Rights Act make it unlawful to discriminate against a person 40 years of age, or older, in hiring, promotion, lay-off, termination or other terms or conditions of employment. If you are 40 years of age, or older, and believe that you have been the victim of discriminatory acts or employment decisions based upon your age contact Melvin D. Kennedy today. Employment discrimination complaints are time sensitive and you may lose the protections afforded by federal and state laws if you act too late.
