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.
