Summary: AGE DISCRIMINATION IN HOLLYWOOD IS ILLEGAL

If you’re 40 or older, and you’ve been working in the entertainment industry and you suddenly lost your job for no reason you can think of, you may be a victim of age discrimination in Hollywood. 

 

The entertainment industry has always considered itself a “young” industry, meaning that they prefer to employ people who are in their 20’s and 30’s.  The alleged reason for this is they feel that their main audience is young and the only way to create movies and television and other entertainment for this audience is to have young people working for them.  This way of thinking has led to age discrimination in Hollywood.

 

Anyone who has worked in the entertainment industry knows that talented people, regardless of their age, can create movies and television programming for any age group.  Unfortunately, the entertainment industry has failed to grasp this important fact and many talented people age 40 and over, who are ready, willing, and able to work for many more years, have been the victims of age discrimination in Hollywood and have lost their jobs.

Freiman, Attorney at Law which is law firm that specializes in Employment Law and Entertainment Law and is uniquely qualified to deal with clients who are victims of age discrimination in Hollywood. 

 

If you are age 40 or older, you are protected against age discrimination in Hollywood, by the Federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act. These laws protect you from being fired; being denied a promotion; being paid a lower salary; being denied benefits provided to younger employees; as well as other protections.  If your employer has violated these laws among other awards, you may be entitled to: all your salary, benefits, and other compensation you’ve been denied; being reinstated if you were fired or getting the promotion you were denied (or in the alternative, getting compensation for these future earnings which were denied); and your employer may have to pay your attorneys’ fees and court costs.
