Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice.

By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.

Yes, there is nothing illegal about doing an interview online. This happens all the time, actually.

If you feel you were discriminated against due to age (40 or over), then someone in your situation can file a discrimination complaint with the EEOC - see HERE. However, the fact that the interview was done online does not relate to the age discrimination matter.

I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
