Westchester County and New York City Wrongful Termination Lawyers

It is against the law for any employer to fire you, refuse you a promotion or refuse to hire you based on your age. Our Westchester County, New York, age discrimination attorneys are highly skilled and experienced litigators who understand the nuances involved in local, state, and federal anti-discrimination laws. At Markus & Sheridan, LLP, we have the tenacity and unique perspective that only comes from attorneys who have worked on both sides of an employment law dispute.

Aggressively Representing Your Interests in Against Age Discrimination in New York

New York State and New York City laws apply to employers with four or more employees and protects employees 18 and over. The laws prohibit employers from discriminating against potential employees or current employees on the basis of age. This extends not to just hiring or firing, but also to several other areas of employment, including salary, promotions and discipline. New York City takes their anti-age discrimination laws one step further by making it illegal to make statements showing a prejudice against certain age groups, and even allowing victims of age discrimination to recover punitive damages.

At Markus & Sheridan, LLP we handle all phases of an age discrimination lawsuit under the New York City and New York State Human Rights Laws. From filing a complaint, to negotiating a settlement, or when required aggressively litigating on your behalf in court. We are experienced attorneys and passionate about protecting our clients' interests. We will work at all times to obtain you the relief that properly addresses your situation.

Skillfully Handling Your Federal Age Discrimination Claim

Our firm's attorneys have the knowledge and experience handling age discrimination claims involving the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA).

Under the ADEA, an individual over 40 is protected from age discrimination in terms of job advertisements, recruitment, application and hiring, job referrals, job assignments and promotions, pay and benefits, discipline and termination, employment references, and even making an age discrimination claim. At Markus & Sheridan, LLP, we will ensure that at all times your voice is heard and, if appropriate, that the employer is held responsible for its actions.
