As you get older, you become more experienced in your profession. While age often makes professionals wiser and more skilled at their jobs, some employers view age as a negative attribute. In fact, some employers in Kansas City unfairly use age as a basis for hiring, promotions, and determining benefits, which is illegal to do. All employees living in the Kansas City area, on both sides of the state line, are granted certain protections under state and federal laws, which provide protection to prevent age-based discrimination. If you are living in Kansas City and suspect you are experiencing age discrimination from your employer, it’s essential to seek legal counsel from an age discrimination lawyer.

At Hollis Law Firm, our employment attorney has years of experience assisting Kansas City employees with issues surrounding discrimination. Our team is committed to fighting for employees who have been treated unfairly because of their age. We work tirelessly to secure justice for employees who have experienced age-based discrimination from their employers.

What to Know About Age Discrimination in Kansas City 

As an employee, there is important information to know about age discrimination in Kansas City. Missouri and Kansas state laws and federal laws protect most Kansas City residents who are 40 years of age or older from age-based discrimination. These laws prohibit employers from discriminating against their employees on the basis of age in all aspects of employment (i.e., hiring, firing, promotion, etc.). This means that nearly all Kansas City employers must abide by the following conditions for employees and job applicants who are 40 years of age or older:

    • They cannot refuse to hire potential candidates because of their age
    • They cannot refuse to promote employees because of age
    • They cannot fire or terminate an employee because of age
    • They cannot limit, classify, or separate employees based on age

If you are experiencing any of these conditions at your workplace, you may be the victim of age-based discrimination. Consulting with a skilled age discrimination lawyer is the best way to determine if you are experiencing illegal discrimination. An attorney also can help you understand your legal options.

How to Identify Age-Based Discrimination 

Like other forms of discrimination, age-based discrimination is often subtle, making it difficult to identify. While this form of discrimination can be obvious, some employers are successful at concealing when age was a determining factor in a decision. Some signs that age-based discrimination may be occurring in your workplace include:

    • You weren’t hired because the employer wanted someone who looked younger
    • You were wrongfully terminated because your employer chose to hire younger employees for lower wages
    • A younger employee was promoted instead of you because the employer wanted to “keep the company young”
    • Your company experienced lay-offs in which older employees were laid off while younger employees retained their jobs
    • Your employer made inappropriate jokes or comments about your age

    These are just a few common examples of age-based discrimination; however, this form of discrimination can manifest in other ways. If you suspect you are the victim of age discrimination at your workplace, it’s essential to meet with a skilled employment lawyer.

The Hollis staff did a great job answering questions!

Jason’s patience with all my questions throughout this rather long process was very reassuring. My many calls were always answered promptly and professionally by the Hollis staff. If Jason was not immediately available, he would always return my calls the same day or at the latest, the next day. The Hollis staff did a great job answering questions, but never guessed at answering. If they could not answer a question they quickly passed it on to Jason. Jason did a very good job of explaining the legal issues with my case, how the process worked, and what all my options were when applicable. Jason and everyone I spoke with at Hollis were always professional and seemed to genuinely care about me and my case. I felt very comfortable working with Jason and the Hollis Law Firm staff. I would be totally at ease recommending Jason and the Hollis Law Firm to anyone.
