What Is Ageism?

Age discrimination, also called ageism, is the unfair treatment of an employee based on their age. It can affect your job security, your career progression and your sense of dignity at work. Under the Missouri Human Rights Act, this type of discrimination is illegal in employment situations for individuals aged 40 and over. Some of the most common ways that ageism manifests in the workplace include:

  • Being passed over for promotion because of your age.
  • Receiving fewer training opportunities compared to younger colleagues.
  • Hearing age-related remarks or jokes in the workplace.
  • Experiencing a demotion or job termination based on age assumptions.

Age should not define your professional capabilities. Our age discrimination attorneys are committed to upholding the protections granted by the Missouri Human Rights Act to workers in all industries.
