This letter is to acknowledge my appreciation and satisfaction with your professionalism in the handling of my suit against my former employer. You were always available for consultation no matter what my concerns were.
Federal and state laws such as the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Rhode Island Fair Employment Practices Act and the Massachusetts Fair Employment Practices Act prohibit employers from discriminating against employees and job applicants on the basis of age. These laws protect people 40 years of age and older from aged-based discrimination. Discrimination can occur in hiring, compensation, benefits, promotion, training opportunities, job assignments, demotion, termination of employment, layoff and any other terms and conditions of employment.
It is also illegal to retaliate against an employee for:
- opposing an age-based discriminatory employment practice;
- complaining about age discrimination;
- filing an age discrimination charge or complaint;
- testifying or participating in an investigation or proceeding involving age discrimination.
If you believe that you have suffered discrimination and/or if you have reported discrimination and believe that you have been retaliated against, you may contact the Law Office of Louise A. Herman for a free consultation.
