Austin Age Discrimination Lawyers
In order to ensure employee rights, individuals over the age of 40 are protected from age discrimination under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). Workplace discrimination based on age occurs when an individual is treated less favorably because of his or her age. Since the retirement age is continually rising, protection against age-based discrimination has become particularly crucial.
Though workplace discrimination is unfortunate, there is help available to victims. The attorneys at The Melton Law Firm have successfully represented many Austin employees that have been victimized by unfair workplace discrimination, and we are prepared to evaluate your age discrimination case. Individuals who believe that they have been affected by age discrimination should seek legal representation to discuss their options.

During the course of a person’s employment, age-based discrimination could occur at many different junctures, including:
- Determining Pay
- Job Assignments
An individual’s age should not become a detriment to their employment status or opportunities; lawyers at The Melton Law Firm are dedicated to preserving the rights of Austin workers. Knowledgeable legal representation can help you determine your options for legal recourse if age discrimination has, indeed, occurred.
