Sometimes, people think employment discrimination only impacts victims on a temporary basis. Some people wrongly assume that those who experience discrimination are able to get back on their feet and move on. However, for most victims of employment discrimination, it takes a long time to recover from the emotional scar of being humiliated and discriminated against based on their disability, gender, religion, age, etc. For example, those who experience age discrimination often have a tough time recovering from their negative experiences from an emotional point of view and some have a very hard time finding a new job because of their age.
There are multiple ways in which victims of age discrimination suffer, not only in the short-term but also from a long-term viewpoint. Financial hardships are common, such as falling behind on mortgage payment, rent, having your car repossessed for missed payments, maxing out credit cards, having to pawn jewelry in order to pay the essential living expenses. Moreover, the mental toll is so significant that some people start believing that because of their age they are worthless and don’t have anything to offer. Some people are fired after devoting years of their lives to their jobs and they are never able to replace a position that was wrongly taken from them.
To make things worse, age discrimination cases are not always taken as seriously as other types of discrimination. The Nourmand Law Firm, APC believes that all forms of unlawful discrimination are unacceptable and anyone who experiences mistreatment because of their age deserves justice. Whether someone’s application is tossed out because of their age, they are demoted or they lose their position because of their age, taking action is key and our website offers more info.
