It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against an employee or job applicant based on their age. The federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act prohibits employers from treating a job applicant or employee who is 40 years of age or older less favorably than others based on their age. Under Minnesota Law, age discrimination is prohibited against anyone who is age 25 or older.

How Do You Know If You Are Experiencing Age Discrimination?
Age discrimination can be subtle. We can help you determine whether you have an age discrimination case by investigating your employer’s procedures regarding:
- Hiring and advertising for positions
- Promotions or bonuses offered
- Termination of employment
- Workplace conditions
- Opportunities for training
If you reported concerns of age discrimination, it is illegal for your employer to fire you or otherwise retaliate you.
