Age Discrimination Issues in Texas
Our Houston Employment Law Attorneys Will Fight for You
Due to the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), it is illegal for
employers to discriminate against anyone over the age of 40 based solely
on their age. Ever since its establishment in 1967, the act has treated
someone’s age as a legally protected characteristic similar to someone’s
race, religious, gender, and more.
Specifically, if you are more than 40 years old, you cannot be treated
differently in the workplace due to age in matters regarding:
- Discharges and penalties
- Employment benefits
- Compensations and wages
- Conditions or terms of employment
It is important to note that there are some circumstances in which someone
under the age of 40 would be protected from workplace
discrimination. If you need to fully understand your rights as a worker in Texas –
or if you feel you have been unfairly treated due to your age –
contact a Houston employment lawyer from Moore & Associates today.
