Age Discrimination In The Workplace
Though employment discrimination based on age is illegal, older people statistically have more difficulty finding work than younger people, and discrimination against employed older people still commonly occurs.
If you believe you have lost your job, lost a promotion opportunity or suffered from a hostile work environment due to your age, it’s important that you investigate your legal rights.
At Bononi Law Group, LLP, we have handled age discrimination cases for dozens of clients for over two decades. Our track record includes numerous five- and six-figure awards for older clients who have faced age discrimination in the workplace.

The rights of workers over the age of 40 are protected by powerful federal and state laws, including:
- The federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act
- The California Fair Employment and Housing Act
By pursuing compensation and a fair outcome under these and other laws, we can protect your rights and dignity while aggressively pursuing the compensation you need and deserve following workplace discrimination.
We are in court weekly to defend clients’ rights and work with both employers and employees facing employment law disputes.
Q. If I am turned down for a job and a younger person with less experience and knowledge is awarded the position, am I the victim of age discrimination?
A. You may have a case under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). This federal law prohibits most employers from discriminating on the basis of age in hiring, firing and promotion. It protects most employees from age-based discrimination in matters of hiring, training, benefits, compensation, promotion, dismissal, layoffs and other aspects of employment.
