Age Discrimination and Age Harassment
Labor & Employment Law
Age Discrimination in Florida
The Sass Law Firm represents employees in age discrimination cases in both federal and state courts. Our firm achieved one of the best results of all cases litigated in 2011 in an age discrimination case according to the Jury Verdict Reporter. Although federal age discrimination law protects only employees who are age 40 or over, our Florida state law protects employees of all ages from age discrimination. If you feel you have suffered from age discrimination, either by not being hired because of your age, being fired because of your age, or have been treated differently in the workplace based upon your age, including being subjected to a hostile work environment, please call the Sass Law Firm for a consultation to learn more about your rights and potential remedies. Age discrimination is against the law.
Age Harassment and Hostile Work Environment
The federal and state laws prohibiting treating employees differently with regard to the terms, conditions and privileges of employment based upon age also make it illegal to subject an employee to harassment because of age. For example, if you are frequently subjected to ageist comments by co-workers or supervisors, it could be considered unlawful harassment or creating a hostile work environment. If you feel you are being harassed because of your age, and need assistance with seeking internal remedies and/or legal remedies if the age harassment does not stop, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights. Age harassment is against the law.
Additionally, if you are retaliated against for complaining about age harassment or age discrimination, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights and potential remedies. Retaliation is against the law.
