Age Discrimination Attorneys in Los Angeles

Protecting the Rights of Older Workers

Age discrimination is prohibited under the California Fair Employment Housing Act. The law prohibits employers from discriminating against an employee because the person is older than 40. The Los Angeles age discrimination lawyers at Feldman Browne, APC have more than 50 years of combined experience going up against the biggest and best in defense of the little guy.

If a potential age discrimination action has occurred at your workplace, call (310) 984-1415 or contact us online to get advice from an experienced age discrimination lawyer.

Evidence of Age Discrimination

In age discrimination cases, the evidence is often circumstantial, but this will suffice for the courts when it is presented by a knowledgeable attorney. Our age discrimination attorneys in Los Angeles raise an inference of discrimination by showing that the client belongs to a protected class, was subject to an adverse action in the workplace, and that employees outside the protected class were treated more favorably.

Other evidence in employment age discrimination cases may include:

  • Statistical evidence
  • Comparative evidence
  • Direct evidence, such as discriminatory comments

We can present evidence to raise the inference that the action taken against an older employee was driven by ageist attitudes or prejudice. It can be effective to show comparative evidence by showing that different rules and standards were applied to employees of different ages in the workplace.
