Davis & Davis Is on Your Side
Boston Age Discrimination Lawyer
Fighting for the Rights of All Employees in Suffolk County, MA
Age discrimination is never obvious. Our lawyers in Boston have never once had a client who came into our law office and relayed that the boss admitted that the client was fired because he or she was too old.
Companies know that age discrimination is illegal, and most companies teach their management teams to avoid making ageist comments. However, judges and juries recognize that sometimes age discrimination is couched in ambiguous terms.
For example, asking an employee why they don’t want to spend more time with the grandchildren can certainly support the inference that the employer thinks the employee may be too old.
Age discrimination cases can be difficult to prove. After all, a company certainly has the right to terminate long-term, highly compensated employees and to replace these employees with less-expensive employees.
Thus, companies in Boston often defend allegations of age discrimination by claiming that the company eliminated older employees as a cost-savings measure, which is legal. Regardless of the circumstances of your age discrimination case, Davis & Davis, P.C. can help protect your legal rights.
How To Determine If You Have an Age Discrimination Claim in Boston
When determining if you have a valid age discrimination claim, the first step to consider is whether you can satisfy four key criteria.
- Are you over the age of 40?
- Have you been performing your job at a satisfactory or better than satisfactory level?
- Have you been fired, demoted, or subjected to other unfair decisions?
- Have you been replaced by someone younger, or have your job duties been delegated to younger employees?
If these are true, you may have experienced age discrimination. Our Boston employment lawyers can conduct a further investigation into your situation and build a strong discrimination case on your behalf.
