For many workers, years spent in the workforce can come with a lot of advantages: knowledge, seniority, and respect from your peers and colleagues. However, this isn't always the case. Too often, employees over 40 are subjected to discrimination from employers, barring them from the compensation, positions, and opportunities they frequently deserve.
If you believe that you have been discriminated against at work due to your age, it may be time to start exploring your legal options. At Habbas & Associates, our dedicated San Jose workplace discrimination attorneys have recovered millions of dollars for clients with discrimination and retaliation claims and know what it takes to secure results for workers who have been wronged by their employers.

State & Federal Laws
There are both state and federal laws in place that protect workers from unfair treatment from their employers—including age discrimination. The federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) both protect older workers in California from a wide range of discriminatory actions.
Instances of age discrimination at work can include:
- Not getting an assignment or promotion due to your age
- Not getting a raise because of your age
- Getting fired due to your age
- Getting laid off due to your age
Sometimes employers are transparent about their preference for younger personnel, but often, they will present reasons other than age for mistreating an older employee. At our firm, we can help you get to bottom of your employer's wrongdoing and ensure that it is clearly illustrated to the judge as we pursue you the compensation you deserve.
Employers do not always get the last word in these matters. Call our offices at (888) 387-4053 today to explore your options.
