Both federal and state law prohibits company decisions based on a job applicant’s or employee’s age.

PREVENT AGE DISCRIMINATION

Federal age discrimination statutes protect anyone over the age of forty. Some states, including Oregon, have extended protection to anyone over the age of eighteen. Because of this potentially broad protection against age discrimination, it is important for employers to know how to detect and prevent age discrimination, and for employees to know their rights when they face discrimination. An experienced employment lawyer can help your company develop policies to prevent age discrimination claims and minimize the likelihood of exposure in the event of a corporate lawsuit.

TESTIMONIALS:

  • 100% Satisfaction with Communication
         Eric helped represent me with a very large lawsuit that was brought against me. 100% satisfaction with communication. It was timely; it was appropriate; it was insightful, thoughtful. From beginning to end, it was very clear that my legal counsel, Eric Helmy was by far the better warrior, so to speak, the intellectually, strategically, and we clearly outthought the opposition from beginning to end, and I don’t think they knew what hit them. The opposition didn’t have any choice but to really retreat and drop the suit, so I was very satisfied.

  • He'll Respond to Me When I Need Him.
         …I believe my law case never would have got off the ground without Eric’s attention to what was happening to me. I’m an excavator, in the tough times that have come along, there’s been several instances where the big developers think they’re not going to pay me, and I feel like they’re trying to [take advantage of] me. I can call Eric,…and he’ll come down and go sit in a meeting with me and all these big developers are writing checks before we’re getting up and leaving. …It’s nice to know that I have him on retainer, and he’ll respond for me when I need him. That’s the personal service you’ll get with him…
