Age Discrimination

Minneapolis Age Discrimination Attorneys

Older Woman at Desk (1mb)Many people assume that experience and proven ability will be considered assets in the job market, but unfortunately many employers treat capable, aging employees as liabilities. Every year thousands of employees over the age of 40 are discriminated against at work because of their age.

At LeBlanc Law & Mediation, a Minneapolis, Minnesota, employment law firm, we advocate zealously on behalf of individuals bringing claims of age discrimination against their employers under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) or the Minnesota Human Rights Act (MHRA).

Dedicated Age Discrimination Representation From Twin Cities Employment Law Attorneys

Age discrimination is often subtle and hard to identify. At LeBlanc Law & Mediation, we work closely with clients to craft persuasive arguments that shine a light on the discriminatory practices of employers.

Age discrimination can take many forms, including:

  • Letting older employees go instead of less-experienced, younger employees during a corporate restructuring or downsizing
  • Suddenly writing up or disciplining aging employees
  • Not providing older employees with the same training opportunities as younger employees
  • Pressuring employees to retire
  • Firing or laying off employees right before their pensions or other retirement plans vest
  • Making degrading or disrespectful comments or jokes regarding age
  • Overlooking older employees for promotion
  • Transferring older employees to roles that are less desirable or carry less responsibility
  • Denying health benefits to older employees

At LeBlanc Law & Mediation we are committed to helping our clients reach the best resolutions possible. We take the time to discuss all of the options available to clients, learning about their goals and crafting plans that have their best interests at heart. Whether you are looking to negotiate a separation agreement, fight for your job or discuss other options, we will help you achieve your goals while protecting your rights.
