Attorneys Who Protect Employees
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.
