Former Employee Accuses South Florida Company of Discrimination

September 27, 2017

A former employee is suing a south Florida company for alleged age discrimination, disability discrimination and retaliation.

The woman filed a complaint on Aug. 2 in the Broward County Circuit Court, alleging that the company breached their duty of good faith and fair dealing.

According to the complaint, the woman alleges that she suffered damages on Feb. 1, 2015 as a result of the company allegedly terminating her employment based upon her age, disability and in retaliation for her complaints of discrimination. The woman claims that she suffered mental anguish, loss of dignity and loss of future earnings.

The woman holds the company responsible for allegedly acting with malice and reckless disregard for her protected rights, and for allegedly interfering with her contractual right to enjoy the same benefits and privileges as other employees.

Discrimination can take on many different forms. Sadly, when an employer or another employee discriminates against someone because of age or disability, it is not always easy to prove that is the cause of the discrimination. If you feel you have been the victim of discrimination and you have a disability or are over 40 years old, it is important to work with our South Florida Discrimination Lawyers at Whittel & Melton who can protect your rights.

Age discrimination specifically focuses on the concept that an older person cannot perform a job as well as a younger person. If you are 40 or older and are being treated differently than your coworkers, you could have grounds for a discrimination lawsuit. The older you are, the better the argument for age discrimination becomes.

If you feel that you have been discriminated against because of a disability you have or because of your age, we can help. You might be unsure of what steps to take to protect your rights as an employee. Call us today at 561-367-8777 or contact us online for a free consultation.
