Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct and prepare your response.
I would consider filing an EEOC complaint here.This treatment really may be a means to try and replace you with a younger and cheaper replacement.Age discrimination and here there may be other categories as well is illegal.This offers you protection here if they try to terminate you.You would then file again claiming retaliation with EEOC. I would try this in addition to any other grievance you file in these matters.EEOC here issues a right to sue letter and you can sue here too for this and seek damages.
If you believe that you have been discriminated against at work because of your race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information, youcan file a Charge of Discrimination. All of the laws enforced by EEOC, except for the Equal Pay Act, require you to file a Charge of Discrimination with us before you can file a job discrimination lawsuit against your employer. In addition, an individual, organization, or agency may file a charge on behalf of another person in order to protect theaggrieved person's identity. There are time limits for filing a charge.
I would try to shape your complaint in the area of discrimination here.
Harassment can include, for example, offensive remarks about a person's age. Although the law doesn't prohibit simple teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that aren't very serious, harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or when it results in an adverse employment decision (such as the victim being fired or demoted).
The harasser can be the victim's supervisor, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, or someone who is not an employee of the employer, such as a client or customer.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.You may want to get an employment lawyer locally to sue as well.
