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.

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.
