New Orleans Age Discrimination Lawyer
Representing Employees Over 40
It is commonly said that with age comes wisdom, experience and knowledge. Unfortunately, employers do not necessarily hold this belief to be true. Age discrimination is a very real problem in many workplaces today. Some employers see older workers as more costly and less desirable than younger workers.
If you have experienced age discrimination that resulted in a missed promotion, a demotion or a wrongful termination, you have cause for legal action. At Farrugia Law Firm, LLC, we aggressively protect the rights of older workers, including individual employees and groups of employees. Call our office in New Orleans at 504-525-0250 or 866-676-0856 to speak with an experienced lawyer about your situation.
Fighting Discrimination Against Older Employees
While it is illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee over the age of 40, the reality is that it happens. This discrimination may take many forms, including:
- A layoff
- Reduction in workforce
- Departmental reorganization
- Losing a promotion to a younger, less qualified candidate
- Changes in work assignments
As your attorney, Victor Farrugia will thoroughly investigate your situation and gather evidence to support your claim. He will listen to the facts of your case, look for patterns of discrimination by your employer, and gather evidence from witnesses of discriminatory behavior. With detailed understanding of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and Louisiana age discrimination statutes, Mr. Farrugia will work to help you achieve justice.
