Answered

A: Before bringing a law suit for age discrimination, an employee must first file a complaint with an administrative agency. In Pennsylvania,, you may file a complaint of age discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (if your employer has more than 20 employees), or the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission if your employer does not meet the minimum employee requirement to be covered under federal age discrimination law. You have a limited time to file charges with an administrative agency, so I would advise you to consult an employment attorney near you and move quickly if you believe you've been discriminated against at work.
