Philadelphia Employment Lawyer, Sidney L. Gold, Featured in Age Discrimination Lawsuits Article

January 27th, 2016

Philadelphia Employment Lawyer Weighs in on Increase in Age Discrimination LawsuitsSidney L. Gold, founding partner and principal shareholder of Philadelphia employment law firm of Sidney L. Gold & Associates, P.C., was recently interviewed by the Legal Intelligencer about his knowledge and experience regarding age discrimination and employment law. As baby boomers near and reach the traditional age of retirement, there has been a marked increase in the number of age discrimination lawsuits nationwide. During the interview, Gold brought attention to the reality that many workers are not financially prepared to retire at the age of 65 and any discussion about succession planning by an employer must be done appropriately. Gold added that employers are frequently unwilling to accommodate older workers who miss work due to age-related ailments, even when such leave is protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act. Thus, there has also been an increase in disability discrimination lawsuits pertaining to age-related maladies.

Sidney L. Gold is a leader in the field of employment law in Philadelphia and has been successfully representing clients in employment law matters including age discrimination, disability discrimination and wrongful termination for over 35 years. Gold is highly regarded as one of Philadelphia’s top employment lawyers and has been recognized by Martindale-Hubbel as an AV Preeminent Lawyer in the field of employment law. Gold has also been selected to Super Lawyers for 13 consecutive years and has been selected by his peers to appear in the 2009-2015 editions of The Best Lawyers in America.
