Age Discrimination

 

Age discrimination and wrongful discharge cases typically involve the termination of a long term older employee who is then replaced with a significantly younger person earning less money. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and Michigan’s Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights Act prohibit this and other types of age discrimination in the workplace. Like victims of other types of discrimination, an age discrimination claimant can elect to process in federal court, but must first file an administrative claim before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  The Law Office of Bryan Monaghan has long experience with age discrimination cases, and can help you understand the complicated process of navigating an age discrimination lawsuit.
