Over the years, we have assisted countless clients who have experienced age discrimination in the workplace. With mistreatment ranging from forced retirement or termination to insufficient or altered retirement programs, our staff has experience addressing various situations affecting workers of all ages.
Typically, our clients are individuals who are 40 years old and older who have experienced ageism in the workplace and have been forced out of work in favor of a younger, less costly employee. In these cases, many employers believe they have the right and ability to fire any at will employee. In fact, termination of this type is strictly forbidden by employment law guidelines and constitutes age discrimination in its most basic form.
Our staff has also assisted clients who have experienced issues relating to:
- Benefits changes prohibited by the Employment Retirement Security Act (ERISA)
- Mistreatment by supervisors
- Constructive termination or discharge
- Disadvantaged employees
Intentional inflection of emotional distress.Potential Recovery
Where employees have been wrongfully discriminated against, they may acquire monetary damages from an employer who acted illegally in firing them, including compensation and punitive damages as well as reimbursement for attorneys fees and court costs. In Vermont, mediation is mandatory before cases go to trial and as a result many cases settle without trial.
Whatever your specific mistreatment may be, our staff works diligently to offer the informative guidance you need to make strong decisions during the process of recovering compensation for your losses or reinstatement to your former position if you so choose.
