Workplace Age Harassment
Although most people think of workplace harassment in terms of sexual harassment, it is far too common for people of advanced age to be treated unfairly, harassed and discriminated against. If you are experience age-based harassment at work, it is important to talk with an experienced lawyer to protect your rights.
Age-based harassment at work is a serious issue. Our attorneys at Le Clerc & Le Clerc LLP in San Francisco have extensive experience representing employees in the Bay Area and throughout California who have been victims of harassment due to their age.
Harassment Can Lead To A Hostile Work Environment
You have rights in the workplace, and you do not have to tolerate harassment in any shape or form. Age-based harassment can come in many different forms such as other employees making jokes or negative remarks about your age.
When harassment leads to a hostile work environment or status change for the employee, he or she may be able to file a legal complaint. Employees working in a hostile work environment often feel intimidated or uncomfortable performing their regular duties or even coming into work every day. A status change can include having your job duties reassigned or being demoted or fired.
