Minnesota Age Discrimination Attorney

Age Discrimination

Employers may not base employment decisions based on the age of an applicant or employee. If an applicant or employee is at least 40 years old, those employees are protected against employer age discrimination. Areas protected include, job assignments, training benefits, layoffs, promotions, hiring, termination, and compensation.

Age-based workplace harassment is illegal when it becomes elevated to a hostile work environment practice for the employee. Also, if an employer adopts broad policy guidelines that have the effect of discriminating against workers 40 years of age and older, then those policies also are illegal.

Here are some types of age discrimination:

  • Forced retirement or termination because of age.
  • Benefits or salary reduced or increases denied because of age. Your employer reduced your compensation or benefits, demoted you, or denied you a promotion because of your age.
  • Your employer prefers to hire and promote younger employees or provides them benefits not available to older employees.
  • An employer who generated a negative employment rating or adverse treatment due to employee complaints of age discrimination.
  • An employee who was not hired in favor of a younger applicant even if the older employee was more qualified.
