If I am passed over for promotion or get no raise due to age what can I do about it?

By Douglas Lipsky

If you’re passed over for promotion or are not given a raise because of your age, your employer is breaking the law. You should contact Lipsky Lowe and we will advocate for you to get you the compensation that you rightfully deserve because if you’re 40 and over, which is the legal threshold for being considered old, your employer cannot make any employment decision based on your age.
