State and Federal Laws Protect You
While laws do prevent employers from hiring individuals who are too young to work, age discrimination involves employees or applicants who are over the age of 40. Just like other examples of workplace discrimination, both Texas and federal discrimination laws prohibit companies from considering the age of an employee or applicant when determining hiring, firing, wage or benefit calculations and other employment decisions.
