Standing up against age discrimination

On our website, we have gone over some of the different types of discrimination that continue to affect employees and applicants in workplaces across the country. For some prospective workers and employees in West Virginia, age discrimination has been especially problematic and has resulted in a host of challenges (depression, financial difficulties, career problems, etc.). If age discrimination has created problems for you personally, it is crucial to stand up against this illegal activity. If you are unsure whether or not you were discriminated against on the basis of your age, you may want to investigate the situation further.

Some people have been turned down for a job solely because of their age, whether they were in their late 30s, 40s or older. In doing so, employers and hiring managers may be hurting themselves by turning down a fully-qualified applicant who would have been able to help take the company to new heights. However, this bias against older applicants can be very disheartening from the perspective of someone looking for work. Age discrimination also affects those who already have a job. For example, someone may find out that their position has been terminated for seemingly no reason. Unfortunately, they may discover that their termination was likely based on their age as other workers who are older are let go as well.

Not only do workers whose rights have been violated deserve justice, but discrimination should be addressed to prevent further occurrences. Our employment discrimination page covers additional topics related to age discrimination.
