Are you 40-years of age or older? If so, you are in a protected class of workers. Employers cannot refuse to hire, terminate, demote or otherwise discriminate against an employee because of age.
Even so, age discrimination is a serious problem in California and across the nation. Unfortunately, many employers view older workers as a drag on their bottom line. Older workers want too much pay. Their health care benefits are too costly. They are not be able to “keep up” with younger employees. They have “one foot out the door.” The attorneys at the California Civil Rights Law Group know that nothing could be further from the truth.
