Philadelphia Law Firm Advocates For Victims Of Age Discrimination
The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) is a federal law that makes it unlawful to discriminate against an employee because of his or her age. You may have a claim under the ADEA if you:
- Are at least 40 years old;
- Were qualified for your job;
- Were subjected a negative employment action (such as termination or demotion); and
- Were replaced by an employee that is significantly younger than you.
Certain state or local laws prohibit age-based discrimination even if the employee is not over the age of forty. For example, New Jersey state law applies to all employees over the age of 18. Thus, New Jersey state law recognizes “reverse age discrimination.”
