Your work ethic and ability to perform a job well should be what your employer sees when interviewing, hiring or managing you. Unfortunately, many employers evaluate other, personal aspects of your life as well. They look at employees as human capital — assets and liabilities they can either benefit from or be responsible for.

The result of this evaluation is often discrimination against certain workers, sometimes on the basis of their age. You deserve to be treated fairly by your employer and be given an equal opportunity to be hired regardless of your age. If you believe you have faced age discrimination either in the hiring process or while working for an employer, make sure you have an experienced employment law attorney to assert your rights.
