Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
The duration of your employer will have no bearing on your ability to sue for age discrimination. Your ability to sue for age discrimination turns on the answer to one simple question: do you think you can convince a jury, based on all the relevant facts and circumstances, that you were terminated because of how old you are? If you believe you can convince a jury of this, then you have a viable claim for age discrimination. It is really no more complicated than that. Your first step would be to file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The EEOC will investigate and attempt to mediate a resolution with your employer. That not forthcoming, they will either file a lawsuit on your behalf or issue you a "right to sue" letter, which will enable you to sue in civil court with the assistance of an attorney.
I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
Was there anything else I can do for you?
