Being discriminated against due to your age can be a very embarrassing and disheartening experience. Just because you do not meet an employer's preconceived ideas as to what type of person is required for a specific position, does not mean you are not sufficiently qualified to do the job. A person should be hired, advanced, terminated or compensated based on his or her abilities, not age or any other arbitrary factor.
If you have been discriminated against due to your age, the law gives you a way to not only right the wrong that has been done but to pursue compensation for unpaid wages, emotional stress and any other pain and suffering you have had to endure. If it is found your employer or potential employer intentionally discriminated against you due to your age, the court may consider awarding punitive damages above and beyond any other financial compensation.
