Baby Boomers Battling Age Discrimination in a Younger Workforce

August 29th, 2016

Phrases such as “maximum of seven years’ experience,” “recent college graduates,” and “able to fit in with a young team” have become rampant in job postings across the country. Age discrimination in the workforce has flourished largely unchecked as baby boomers are being supplanted by millennials.

Ageism is often more subtle and difficult to prove than other types of employment discrimination. Although the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) was enacted to protect workers over the age 40, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which handles federal employment law violations, currently has an extensive backlog of complaints alleging age discrimination in Philadelphia. Many companies are accused of letting older employees go in favor of hiring younger employees with lower healthcare costs and no pension expectations, and long term unemployment has become markedly more prevalent among workers over the age of 55.

If you have been fired, refused a promotion, or turned down for a job because of your age, you may be able to file a claim under federal or state age discrimination laws. Philadelphia age discrimination lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C. have the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to take on age discrimination cases. Our attorneys fight relentlessly to achieve a favorable outcome for every client we represent. Call 215-569-1999 or contact us online for a free case evaluation.
