Combatting Age Discrimination on the Job in Sacramento & the Surrounding Areas

Were you denied a promotion at work after noticing that only people in their 20s and 30s had been promoted repeatedly? Has a manager openly expressed a goal of making the company “younger” through the hiring and advancement of younger employees? Worse, were you let go from your job for no reason that you could detect besides your age?

As the saying goes, where there’s smoke, there is fire. Whatever form of age discrimination you have experienced deserves a closer look. An important first step to discovering the truth and legal remedies for your situation is to consult with an attorney.

At Velez Law Firm, you will find the caliber of lawyers you are looking for. Peers in the legal community and past clients have called us “sincere, talented, attentive and dedicated” to helping employees overcome injustices such as age discrimination.

What Does the Law Say?

The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) and the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) both specify that employees or prospective employees cannot be discriminated against for their age when they are at least 40 years old.
