What are the ways a Senior can prove they were denied employment due to age discrimination?
Proving employment discrimination is no easy task as evidence of discrimination is usually hard to come by. Still, there are a few ways you can make your claims in court and get your case in front of a jury. First, you have to verify that you were at least 40 years old at the time of the discrimination. Then, you must demonstrate that you’re otherwise fully qualified for the job. Next, you need to show that you experienced an unfavourable employment action like a demotion. Finally, you are required to prove that it was your age that affected your employer (or potential employer) to make the decision. If you believe you have experienced age discrimination in hiring, it’s best to contact an age discrimination lawyer for assistance.
