Layoff Discrimination Because of Age

Our Austin employment lawyers fight against employers who mask their age discrimination as layoffs.  Layoffs can be a tricky issue for employers because older workers have rights under the Older Worker Benefit Protection Act (“OWBPA”). The OWBPA forces employers to give employees over the age of 40 seven days to revoke severance agreement. Employers who violate the OWBPA may be sued for age discrimination. Plus, the employee is allowed to keep the settlement funds. Contact our Austin age discrimination lawyers for assistance with a OWBPA related claim.
