Many older workers find themselves in the unemployment line after years of loyal service to their employers. Some of them may be part of a general layoff while others may have been unfairly singled out and wrongfully discharged. Age discrimination is a violation of federal and Kansas law, and victims of this type of discrimination have the right to claim compensation for their economic losses.
The Law Firm of Michael M. Shultz represents victims of age discrimination and other types of employment discrimination. Our law firm uses the law to obtain compensation for hard-working and conscientious employees who have been wronged by their employers.
Age Discrimination And The Law
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibits discrimination on the basis of age in hiring, promotion and termination for workers 40 years of age or older. Unfortunately, obtaining a successful outcome in an age discrimination case is not easy. Many employers, especially larger ones, take measures to hide the reasons for their actions, particularly in cases involving layoffs and reductions in force. However, success is possible when the right evidence can be developed.
You must first file a complaint with the EEOC or Kansas Human Rights Commission. After 60 days, you can file your lawsuit in court.
Attorney Michael Shultz, being a member of this protected class himself, takes a special interest in age discrimination cases. He is experienced, knowledgeable, and dedicated to helping people assert their employee rights. The Law Firm of Michael M.
