Case Number: 4:20-CV-4344
Judge: Alfred H. Bennett
Court: United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas (Harris County)
Defendant's Attorney: Stephen Jose Quezada and James R. Staley
Description: Houston, Texas civil rights lawyer represented Plaintiff who sued Defendant on an age job discrimination theory.
"The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) is a federal law that prohibits employment discrimination against individuals who are 40 years of age or older. The ADEA applies to employers with 20 or more employees, employment agencies, and labor unions.
The ADEA prohibits discrimination in all aspects of employment, including hiring, firing, compensation, benefits, training, and promotions. The ADEA also prohibits retaliation against employees who file a complaint of age discrimination or who participate in an ADEA investigation.
To prove age discrimination, a plaintiff must show that they were:
40 years of age or older at the time of the alleged discrimination;
Qualified for the job they were seeking or the job they held;
Discriminated against because of their age; and
Suffered an adverse employment action as a result of the discrimination.
If you believe that you have been discriminated against because of your age, you should contact an experienced employment attorney. An attorney can help you understand your rights under the ADEA and can help you file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
The EEOC is a federal agency that enforces federal anti-discrimination laws, including the ADEA. The EEOC can investigate your complaint and can take action against your employer if it finds that you have been discriminated against.
If you are successful in your ADEA lawsuit, you may be entitled to recover damages, including back pay, front pay, interest, and compensation for emotional distress. You may also be entitled to reinstatement to your job or to a similar job with your employer.
The ADEA is an important law that protects older workers from discrimination. If you believe that you have been discriminated against because of your age, you should contact an experienced employment attorney to discuss your case."
