Dallas Age Discrimination Lawyers

Age discrimination in the workplace is a real problem.  The Dallas age discrimination lawyers have experience representing employees who have been terminated, demoted, harassed, or otherwise discriminated against because of their age.

Age Discrimination in the Workplace Age discrimination in the workplace can occur in various ways.  For example, age discrimination can exist in the following ways:

  • An employer who systematically targets and terminates its older employees;
  • Expressing a desire to bring in "fresh blood;"
  • Advising older employers that it will be harder for them to adapt or to make changes;
  • Job postings with an age cutoff;
  • Having your age considered while interviewing for a position
  • Being denied a promotion while a younger, much less qualified candidate is hired
  • Layoffs that affect older employees but not younger employees

Both the Age Discrimination in Employment Act ("ADEA") and Texas state law prohibits employers from discriminating against employees who are 40 or older.  Also, the Older Workers Benefits Protection Act ("OWBPA") provides some additional protections for older workers experiencing layoffs.  The OWBPA requires that employers give older workers 45 days to consider any severance agreement. Additionally, the OWBPA gives older workers 7 days to revoke their severance after signing it.
These laws can be complicated and have short deadlines.  Contact our Dallas age discrimination attorneys if you have experienced any of the above treatment.

I would recommend the Law Office of Rob WIley, P.C. to anybody needing assistance with employment rights. They did an incredible job of handling my case professionally and in a very resonable time frame. In my initial consultation with Rob Wiley I was given a very straight forward analysis of my claims after which Fadi Yousef was the attorney assigned to my case. Working with Fadi was the best. He showed care and a true concern for the direction and result of my lawsuit. Fadi was always available and was in constant communication with me throughout. I thank Fadi Yousef, Rob Wiley and his team for doing a phenomenal job, they were an absolute pleasure to work with. R.G.

Rasha, Eric and Rob did it again a Second time around! I'll admit, they are truly the BEST employment lawyers out here in the Metroplex! Not only they won a case against my previous employer, they also won my unemployment insurance (UI) case as well! It is such a relief and a huge burden off my shoulders about not worrying how I'm going to pay my bills now and provide food for my family. I can't say enough how awesome they are and how far they go to make sure you are taken well care of. Thank you so much Rasha, Eric and Rob for all that you did for me! J.T.
