All employees are protected against a number of different types of discrimination by state and federal laws. In fact, the ADEA (Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 provides any man or woman who is at least 40 years old from being unfairly treated by an employer, whether during the hiring process or while actually working. Despite this law being in place, far too many people in Tampa are victimized by employers due to their age.
Fortunately, when someone has been unfairly treated by an employer due to their age, they have the right to take legal action and seek compensation for their undue suffering. Pursuing such a claim can be arduous, stressful, and often difficult, however, causing many people to seek the help of a skilled attorney.
Fighting Age Discrimination
When looking for an age discrimination lawyer to help you with an age discrimination claim, it is important to not only choose a lawyer who you feel is the right fit for you and your case, but it is also important to look for a legal professional who is both experienced in such cases and who has handled a number of similar claims successfully. Such a lawyer can provide a number of advantages to you and your claim, including the following:
- 1. Pursuing legal avenues that other, less experienced lawyers may not be aware of or may not be as familiar with
- 2. Finding expert witnesses and other people who can help testify for you should your claim go to court
- 3. Helping balance out some of the advantages that a company can have in such claims
By providing these and numerous other benefits, a skilled attorney can often make the difference in winning an age discrimination claim and getting the just compensation those who have been discriminated against deserve.
