Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
It could put you in jeopardy for termination or forced retirement. If the incidents they claim occurred are false or you have evidence this is being done only because of your age, you need to consider filing a complaint with the EEOC for discrimination based on age. Other than age discrimination though, you do not have a claim as the employer can move you to a new position as needed unless you had a written contract to the contrary.
