Age Discrimination In Employment
Following the "baby boom" of the mid-twentieth century, the country has seen an inevitable increase in the age of the workforce and in the number of "older" workers still on the job. Many individuals are capable of being fully productive in their jobs well into what used to be known as "the golden years." Recognizing this, Congress passed the Age Discrimination in Employment Act to ensure employees are treated according to their abilities rather than solely because of their age.
The ADEA prohibits employers from taking adverse action against an employee because the employee is age forty or older. Attorney Wes Sullenger represents individuals who have been harassed, demoted, terminated, or otherwise mistreated because of their age.
The United States Supreme Court has recently limited age discrimination claims to cases in which age was the "sole" reason for the adverse action. Mr. Sullenger has handled cases under the new law.
