Discrimination Based on Age

There Is No Place for Age Discrimination in the Workplace

Mixed Disability and Age Discrimination Is Common

Older workers with disabilities all too often face both disability and age discrimination by their employers.

We represented a cancer-stricken employee who was let go, perhaps because people were uncomfortable around cancer, or perhaps because his employer didn't want to pay for health benefits and sick days.

This far too common story is not only disgraceful — it's illegal.

If you are experiencing discrimination in the workplace, you need an attorney who will be relentless in defending your rights. Contact us now for a free consultation.

In the twenty-first century, discrimination should never be tolerated. If you have been victimized by discriminatory practices you need an attorney that will skillfully represent you as you seek justice.

At Baldwin & Vernon, Attorneys at Law in Liberty, we handle cases before the EEOC, the Missouri Commission on Human Rights, the Kansas Human Rights Commission, and in state and federal courts. Attorneys Kevin Baldwin and Eric Vernon have each been trying cases in Missouri and Kansas for more than a decade.

Do not accept age discrimination as a fact of life. Call (816) 842-1102 or e-mail us today for a free initial consultation.

You Are Not Alone

Cases of age discrimination are becoming much more common as Baby Boomers get older. A large number of these claims are mixed with disability claims, due to many older workers developing disabilities of the course of their lives.

In addition to cases of discrimination, we also handle cases of employees being retaliated against for complaining about age discrimination.

There are numerous laws on the books that outlaw discrimination, and you need a good lawyer to increase the chances of them being enforced. These laws include:

  • The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
  • The Older Worker's Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA)
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

At Baldwin & Vernon, we take all forms of discrimination seriously. If you have been discriminated against for any reason, contact us today.
