Austin Age Discrimination Lawyers
While no Austin employee should be subjected to harassment of any kind, some Austin-area workers are so pervasively and persistently harassed about their age that they no longer feel capable of performing their job-related duties. Austin employers that allow hostile work environments to persist in the workplace, or otherwise directly participate in their creation, may be held financially liable for your suffering.
At The Melton Law Firm, our Austin employment lawyers are dedicated to protecting the rights of employees facing an age-based hostile work environment, and we may fight on your behalf against the employer who has caused you harm.
Conditions of an Age-Based Hostile Work Environment
Under most circumstances, the following four criteria must have been met in order for you to have a strong age-based hostile work environment case against your Austin employer:
- You must be at least 40 years old;
- The harassment you experienced, whether it was verbal or physical, must have been related to your age;
- The very nature of that harassment must have created a work environment that may be objectively recognized as offensive, intimidating, or hostile; and
- Your employer must have done nothing to prevent your harassment, or, otherwise, have directly participated in it
No Austin employee should be subjected to such harsh circumstances. Seek the assistance of an Austin employment lawyer who will fight to protect your rights.
