Harrisburg Pennsylvania Age Discrimination Lawyer

Forced Out or Passed Over Because of Your Age?

Pennsylvania Employment Law Attorneys

Experience is not always valued by employers. Some see cost savings by eliminating high-end salaries. Some assume older workers can't keep up physically or adapt to new technology. Some want to bring in "new blood" they can push around.

At McCarthy Weisberg Cummings, P.C., we protect the rights of Pennsylvania workers who were unjustly terminated or bypassed in hiring on the basis of their age. We are able to represent people who have faced violations of the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and similar state laws.

Age Discrimination Is Illegal

The ADEA protects workers over 40 from discrimination when age is the primary factor in adverse employment actions such as a:

  • Failure to hire
  • Failure to promote
  • Unfavorable work assignments
  • Lower wage/salary than younger workers in similar positions
  • Termination (often disguised as layoffs)

The employment discrimination attorneys of McCarthy Weisberg Cummings, P.C. can file claims against employers who think they can dispose of aging workers. Contact us today for a free consultation. In many cases, if we take your case, there are no attorney fees unless we recover compensation.
