Thank you for using JustAnswer.
I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Do you think that you're being targeted based upon your race, age, religion, gender, or disability? Are you part of a union or do you have an employment contract with the company?
Do you have any evidence that it's because of your age or gender? That is, are there other individuals (male and/or younger) that are performing at or below your level that are not being targeted in this manner?
Did you see my follow up question to your issue?
The reason that I'm asking is that you could have certain rights if you're being targeted based upon your gender and/or age. But to establish that, you need to have some sort of evidence that shows that this is the reason that they're targeting you. One such way is to show that there's someone that has the same performance metrics as you (or worse) but is not being targeted, and the only real difference is a different age, gender, etc... But it's possible that you could have some other evidence, such as a "smoking gun" email that indicates that this is why they're doing this, or something else. My main question is whether you can establish that they're doing this because of your age and/or gender (or some other reason)?
And I understand that you might feel that this "isn't helpful", as I haven't answered your question yet. The strength of any case that you might have and any standing to dispute performance issues they might have depends upon your specific situation, which is why I'm trying to get more information from you. I'm only asking these questions because they're relevant to the answer, and they could change the answer that I might give. I want to give you the most specific answer possible, rather than the most generic, generally applicable answer (which really wouldn't be helpful).
So did you see my questions? Again, I'm trying to tailor an answer to your specific situation, any claims that you might be able to use as leverage, etc... Do you wish to continue with this so that I can answer your question?
Okay. I wish you the best of luck in this matter.
