According to CBS4Denver, wrongful termination cases have increased since the economic downturn. Reporter Andrea Lopez writes that age discrimination suits, in particular, are on the rise.
Do you feel you have been the victim of age discrimination in the workplace? According to the legal expert interviewed by Lopez, several conditions must be met. Firstly, are you over forty? Secondly, are you performing to or exceeding the standards set forth by your employer? In addition, are you experiencing an adverse event by your employer? This could be a termination, demotion, pay cut or some other negative action. In the case of a termination, were you replaced by someone under forty?
