It unfortunate that age discrimination in the workplace is a real thing. According to AARP, two out of three employees between 45 and 74 have experienced it. Job seekers over 35 say their age is the biggest obstacle to finding a job. AARP also says that tech driven industries have even higher instances of age discrimination. If you or a loved one has experienced trouble at work due to age, an employment lawyer can help you fight for your rights.
Dealing with difficult people at work is never easy. This is especially true when you are dealing with a less than stand-up boss. In fact, studies show that people quit because of undesirable bosses and managers more than any other reason. Work conditions can become even harder when a boss or manager is discriminating against employees. What is worse, these kinds of situations can be hard to prove. However, if you feel that you have been discriminated against in the workplace, you can hire an employment lawyer to help you understand your rights and gather the proper evidence.
