Ocean & Monmouth County Discrimination Attorney

It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate on the basis of age, race, disability, religion, sexual preference or orientation, ethnicity or gender. If you believe that you were laid off, terminated, denied a promotion, or refused a job due to discrimination or retaliated against for protected activity, attorney Carolyne Kalson can educate you about your rights and help you explore your options.


Age Discrimination

It can be very difficult for an older person to find new employment after losing a job. Since more experienced employees usually have higher salaries, employers often choose younger employees over older ones. Additionally, older employees are sometimes forced to retire or even targeted for layoffs. It is unlawful for employers to discriminate based on age. If you believe that you received unfair treatment based on your age, Carolyne Kalson can examine the facts and determine whether you have a viable case.
