Englewood, New Jersey

Englewood, New Jersey Age Discrimination Lawyer

With an aging workforce, age discrimination is quickly becoming one of the most common forms of employment discrimination in both New Jersey and New York. All too frequently, companies fire or layoff older workers based on their age. Businesses often do so based on the assumption that older employees are less energetic, do not work as hard, or are either unwilling or unable to learn to perform new tasks or use new technology compared with their younger counterparts. Of course, these stereotypes and assumptions are usually wrong and should not be the basis of employment decisions. In reality, age is likely to bring many advantages to the workplace, including additional experience, knowledge and maturity.

Age discrimination in the workplace violates the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination ("LAD"), the New York Human Rights Law ("NYHRL") and the New York City Human Rights Law ("NYCHRL"). As a result, it is unlawful to fire, demote, harass, or take another adverse action against employees based on how old they are.

Information About Englewood

The City of Englewood was incorporated in March 1899. Located in Bergen County, as of 2010 it had a population of 27,147. Englewood is nearly 5 square miles in size, and is bordered by Teaneck, Tenafly, Englewood Cliffs and Leonia.

The origination of the City’s name is disputed. Some people claim it is named for the Engle family who settled in the area, combined with the fact that there are many wooded areas in the region. But others claim it is a variation of the term “English Neighborhood,” based on the fact that it was one of the first English-speaking settlements on the west bank of the Hudson River. In any event, before it was named Englewood the area was known as Liberty Pole, which came from the Liberty Pole Tavern, which in turn was named for a Liberty Pole and gold Liberty Cap that were built in 1776 to celebrate the repeal of the Stamp Act.
