Everyone deserves equal treatment. When someone is treated poorly or differently because they are older, then that is considered age discrimination. Discrimination based on age, race, sex, and many other factors is against the law. In the time of COVID-19, employers are taking extra precautions in their businesses, but it’s important that they don’t discriminate against older employees.

At McMath Woods, P.A., we know how difficult it can be to emotionally deal with an act of discrimination in your workplace, but you shouldn’t have to go through this alone. Our employment lawyers will fight to defend your rights and hold your employer accountable for their actions.
