Age Discrimination

Uncovering Age Discrimination in New Jersey

What constitutes an ageism case in New Jersey?

Despite state and federal statutes prohibiting it, age discrimination continues to be prevalent in New Jersey. Employers often look for excuses to terminate older employees so they can replace them with younger, less expensive workers. Sometimes ageism is subtle; suddenly, you may find yourself with fewer reports, a smaller territory or lower-profile projects. At other times, discrimination may be blatant; you may start receiving negative evaluations that lack substantiation. But regardless of the overt behavior, if the underlying reason for the adverse employment action taken against you is your age, your employer has broken the law. All instances of age discrimination in NJ deserve to be challenged.
