Every Employee Deserves Respect

Age Discrimination Attorneys in Maryland

Exercise Your Right to Fair Treatment in the Workplace

Few people realize that age discrimination is one of the fastest-growing areas of employment discrimination. This is hardly surprising; as the workforce ages, employers frequently look for ways to shed expensive employees by replacing them with younger, lower-paid workers.

If you believe that a younger or less experienced person was hired or promoted before you or improperly replaced you, you may be a victim of age discrimination. At the Law Office of Andrew M. Dansicker, LLC, we can help you fight for justice and pursue a resolution to this matter.


Discuss your situation with our age discrimination attorneys in Maryland by calling (410) 213-3392.


Defining Age Discrimination

The simple fact that an older worker is terminated and replaced with a younger employee does not mean you have been subjected to age discrimination, but the surrounding facts and circumstances may demonstrate that your employer has acted illegally. Has your employer made any jokes or comments about your age or the age of the workforce? Do the younger workers get all the perks and promotions, while older ones are passed over? Are you held to a higher standard than the younger employees? If so, your company may be in violation of the law under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA).

The ADEA

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 was intended to protect workers over the age of 40 from being treated differently because of their age compared to younger employees. This applies in situations where a 25-year-old is favored over a 45-year-old, and where a 47-year-old is favored over a 70-year-old.

The ADEA also applies to many different types of workplace decisions, including

  • Hiring
  • Promotions
  • Disciplinary actions
  • Termination decisions

Thus, even a person who is denied a job can bring a claim under the ADEA.

The ADEA applies to employers who have 20 or more employees, but even companies with fewer than 20 employees may be subject to age discrimination claims under Maryland state law.
