Employers are barred from taking any kind of adverse action against employees on the basis of age. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) bars discrimination against employees who are 40 years of age or older. Under Michigan law, employees over 40 have similar protections. Whether you are an employer requiring a vigorous defense or an employee who has been terminated or demoted on the basis of your age, it is vital to retain legal counsel that is prepared to protect your interests.
For many years, employees and employers alike have depended on Driggers, Schultz & Herbst. Our law firm maintains a comprehensive employment practice. Based in Troy, our attorneys have defended and prosecuted all types of discrimination claims in courts across Michigan.
