Detroit Federal Employee Age Discrimination Lawyers

The U.S. Constitution provides employees from all industries — public and private — with protections and freedoms. At Akeel & Valentine, PLC, we defend the rights of federal employees in Metro Detroit and throughout Michigan who are suffering discriminatory acts based upon their age.

Our attorneys combine hands-on experience and a comprehensive knowledge of the laws protecting employees who are singled out, not based on their performance, but based upon the year they were born. If you have been discriminated against in hiring, promotion or termination on account of your age, we can represent you.

Call Akeel & Valentine, PLC, at 248-918-4542 for a consultation in our offices in Dearborn or Troy.

Attorneys Who Assert And Protect Your Rights

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) not only provides protection for workers over 40 from discrimination based on age, but also any retaliation that follows the filing of a claim. Administered by the Department of Labor's Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the ADEA governs public and private employers at companies with at least 20 employees.

We explore all avenues of relief for federal employees impacted by ageism, including:

  • Back pay recovery
  • Reinstatement
  • Future pay or future pay changes
  • Reasonable accommodations

At Akeel & Valentine, PLC, we provide the representation of a smaller, boutique firm, yet have achieved big-firm results. The complexity of employment law requires a seasoned employee rights advocate at your side to even the odds you face and educate you on the laws and the rights you have.

Many employees are not even aware that they are part of a protected class. They do not know that a lawyer can help them take action if age discrimination played a factor in being denied a promotion or wrongfully terminated.
