Case Number: 5:22-CV-1366
Judge: Fred Biery
Court: United States District Court for the Western District of Texas (Bexar County)
Defendant's Attorney: Charles H. Wilson and Jared A. Medrano
Description: San Antonio, Texas civil rights lawyer represented Plaintiff who sued Defendant on a job discrimination theory claiming he was discriminated against because of his age.
29 U.S.C. 621 provides:
(a) The Congress hereby finds and declares that—
(1) in the face of rising productivity and affluence, older workers find themselves disadvantaged in their efforts to retain employment, and especially to regain employment when displaced from jobs;
(2) the setting of arbitrary age limits regardless of potential for job performance has become a common practice, and certain otherwise desirable practices may work to the disadvantage of older persons;
(3) the incidence of unemployment, especially long-term unemployment with resultant deterioration of skill, morale, and employer acceptability is, relative to the younger ages, high among older workers; their numbers are great and growing; and their employment problems grave;
(4) the existence in industries affecting commerce, of arbitrary discrimination in employment because of age, burdens commerce and the free flow of goods in commerce.
(b) It is therefore the purpose of this chapter to promote employment of older persons based on their ability rather than age; to prohibit arbitrary age discrimination in employment; to help employers and workers find ways of meeting problems arising from the impact of age on employment.
