Oakland Age Discrimination Attorney

Age discrimination cases are not easy wins. The legal counsel and representation of an experienced employment discrimination lawyer are key to pursuing justice. Since the onset of the Great Recession, age discrimination cases filed at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) have held steady at a level that is 50 percent higher than historic levels.

Employers take significant legal precautions to avoid potential discrimination claims during promotion considerations, annual reviews, layoff periods and firings to ensure that age is not the obvious motivating factor in the case. Legitimate “business reasons” such as eliminating higher paid workers or promoting based on employee revenue production may mix with age discrimination.

The plaintiff bears the burden of proof in providing evidence that age discrimination was the motivating factor in the case, and it is increasingly difficult.
