New Hampshire Age Discrimination Lawyers

Seeking Justice for Clients

Age discrimination is not new and happens frequently in New Hampshire. According to the New Hampshire Commission for Human Rights, the state agency which investigates discrimination complaints, age discrimination is one of the most common forms of unlawful employment discrimination. Nationwide, age discrimination complaints have increased to over 24,500 filed for 2008 at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

As an employee, you have worked hard to get the experience necessary to develop your skills in your career. Unfortunately, employers sometimes make employment decisions based on age. Your age should not be used against you. Our New Hampshire age discrimination lawyers at Douglas, Leonard & Garvey, P.C. understand the sensitive and difficult nature of these cases and the emotional upset caused by the discrimination.

Holding Employers Accountable

Our age discrimination lawyers handle a variety of age-related discrimination protections. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) protects individuals who are 40 years of age or older from employment discrimination based on age. The ADEA’s protections apply to both employees and job applicants.

Under the ADEA, it is unlawful to discriminate against a person because of his/her age with respect to any of the following:

  • Hiring
  • Firing and layoffs
  • Promotion
  • Compensation and benefits
  • Job assignments and training

Insurance companies and employers know our reputation for going to trial with successful results for our clients. This gives us leverage to get you the compensation you deserve for your age discrimination claim.

If you have been victimized by age discrimination on the job, our New Hampshire age discrimination lawyers have years of trial experience in successfully handling age discrimination claims. We can represent you against your employer and the insurance company at the EEOC, NH Commission for Human Rights, or in court.
