People live longer, stay healthier and remain actively employed later in life than ever before. State and federal laws protect individuals who are 40 and over against workplace discrimination that is based on age. These laws prohibit an employer from making workplace decisions regarding hiring, firing, promoting, demoting or training an employee based upon his or her age.

Straight Talk and Aggressive Representation
The Louisiana Employment Discrimination Law and the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) protect workers who are older than 40 from discrimination. One of the best ways to prove age discrimination is to identify an employer's pattern of behavior once workers reach a certain age.
In addition, employers are prohibited from segregating or limiting an employee's opportunities in any manner that would adversely affect the individual's employment status or earning potential.
Putting an accomplished and assertive lawyer in your corner is the first important step to correcting an injustice.
