Anyone over 40 can be the subject of bias against older workers. Typically managers will discriminate against more senior employees based on false stereotypes that they are less efficient or less able to adapt to change. Building a successful age discrimination case usually requires demonstrating that those stereotypes played a significant role in a termination decision.

Peonsin v. California State University
Solano Superior Court Case No. FCS034322
We represented a long-time employee who was passed over for a promotion in favor of a younger, less qualified candidate because the decisionmaker was concerned about plaintiff retiring soon and because the younger candidate was "more energetic." The case settled before trial, and plaintiff was able to retire early.
