Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
This was an application to my former employer (Marriott). I resigned my former position in Newport Beach, CA to move back east due to family needs.
They were vague, saying only that :the management team selected the individual who was the "best fit" for the job. I asked how that could be since I was the #1 sales executive in the Company prior to my resignation and move.
I am not sure if the person selected is under 40 but I believe so.
I believe I was not re-hired here (Hilton Head) because of my age and also because of my medical disability (colon cancer survivor with ostomy appliance) which I mentioned during the interview process.
Since I live on a small SC Island, there are no employment or discrimination experts close by, closest being Columbia, or Charleston. How do I find a qualified attorney and what is a likely range of fees? Thank you!
