need legal counsel re ageism -- easy to prove -- concerning former employer Safeway Stores; was disabled keith XXX
Hello, Mr. Owen.
Thank you for your question. Where in California did this occur?
via telephone and email CA SWY headquarters located in Pleasanton, CA
I'm in San Francisco. SWY wanted me back when in my mid to late forties as a manager but I was caring for my mother -- now deceased. I was told SWY no longer wanted someone like me for I referred to two former managers as jerks for mocking me for caring for my mother etc.
One Store manager broke the law and should've been fired, I didn't menion his name and yet I'm not someone SWY wants. I made them money, boosted morale, work ethic stellar.
do I have legal recourse?...SWY can hire or not ire regardless?
