Age discrimination, a form of employment discrimination, is defined as any any employment practice that treats individuals differently based on age. This is different from seniority, which is permitted by law. It is perfectly legal for older and more experienced workers to get paid more if they are deserving. Age discrimination has become enshrined in law as a result of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1975, which applies only to firms with 20 or more employees.
In order to file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), you must prove that you must first exhaust all other means of finding a remedy for your employment dispute. If the EEOC chooses not to investigate your matter further themselves, they may issue a right to sue letter, which gives the injured party the right to take legal action against his or her employer or potential employer. As the plaintiff, it is your onus to prove that the employers decisions were a pretext or smokescreen. The employer has the burden of proof to show that the policies initiated were indeed based on reasonable practices rather than discrimination. The sooner you contact an employment lawyer the better because in order for your claim to be valid, you must file it within 180 of the issuance of the sue letter with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
