WeWork sued for age discrimination

TB Robinson Law Group

A major coworking space company called WeWork, which is headquartered on the East Coast, was recently accused of discriminating against workers based on age. In addition, it is facing litigation for alleged gender wage inequity. Likewise, if employees in Texas face age discrimination or other types of employment discrimination, it is within their rights to seek justice through the civil court system.

Federal law states that it is not legal for employers to engage in discrimination against workers who are over the age of 39. However, this type of discrimination continues to happen. According to the federal government’s commission on equal employment, more than 16,000 cases related to age discrimination were filed in 2018.

Older workers may experience discrimination during various stages of today’s employment process. For instance, they may be discriminated against when they are being interviewed. Meanwhile, other older employees face this type of discrimination when they draw closer to retirement age.

Companies both large and small in Texas may mistreat their workers on the basis of age, race or other protected factors. Fortunately, when this happens, the mistreated employees may file employment discrimination lawsuits against their employers in an effort to right any wrongs that have been committed. An understanding of the facts that need to be proved will likely be necessary to succeed in such a case. If a plaintiff is successful in a discrimination claim, he or she may receive any lost back pay and benefits or even be reinstated to his or her job depending on the facts surrounding the case.
