Michigan Age Discrimination Attorney

Lawyers Handling Age Discrimination Cases

The Age Discrimination Act in Employment (ADAE) protects workers over age 40 from discrimination in the workplace on the basis of age. The Michigan Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act (MELCA) protects both older and younger workers from age discrimination.

If you believe you may have been illegally discriminated against because of age in a Michigan workplace, the first step to take to remedy any wrongdoing is to ask an employment law attorney to evaluate your case and make recommendations. Contact us to schedule a consultation regarding age discrimination on the job in Michigan. We can offer an experienced, knowledgeable opinion and advise you on the next steps.

Once you decide to take legal action, you may need to file a complaint within a certain time with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). You may be concerned about possible retaliation from your employer because of your complaint — another important reason to talk to an attorney before you file with the EEOC.
