San Diego Employment Law Group provides a strong voice against ageism, in the workplace and
elsewhere. Ageism consists of stereotyping older individuals because of their age, and may also
include physically or financially abusing them. Ageism frequently shows up in job discrimination
based on age. Under federal and California law, individuals are protected against such
discrimination if they are age 40 or older. If an employee, applicant for employment or exemployee
believes that he or she has been subject to age discrimination in terms and conditions
of employment such as hiring, promotion, discipline, performance evaluation, job assignments,
harassing work place comments from others, compensation, layoff or termination, phone our
office to schedule a free initial consultation with an attorney.
Ageism may also take place through physical or financial abuse of older individuals by
others including relatives and con-artists. Improper care of older individuals in a medical facility
or home setting when they are ill or frail can also be a type of such abuse. If you suspect such
abuse, phone our office for a free initial consultation with an attorney.
