I am about to get fired and need some guidance as to what to

Hi, I am about to get fired and need some guidance as to what to expect. I am in GA and started at this company as a contractor but was kind of pressured into converting to full time offer soon offer. Anyway, almost a year later, things are not going well and I see the writing on the wall. BTW, I am a female, over 40, though I don't want to go there, I do believe there is ample proof they actively discriminate here. Anyway, I do not want to have it on my "record" that I have been fired, as I do believe HR can tell future employers this info. I am looking for work but don;t want to make the same mistake I did with this company, rushing into something that did not feel right. My questions are: 1. I have a resignation letter at the ready and I am wanting to put language in their suggesting a meeting of the minds, I go away, stay available for potential info they will probably need for a month, and I get two months severance and a letter of reference - a neutral letter making clear I did a satisfactory job, etc. and a promise anyone calling will not get a bad vibe from HR or them. Does this seem feasible? I have been shut out for awhile, a new lead took over in June and he has made it impossible to continue there, but I have yet to receive a single negative comment or review, but neither positive. I feel they are pushing me out because they have gotten what they need out of me (I have provided detailed design style guides, etc, and I suspect they think that is all they need from my role). Also, the CIO, my boss, just sent out an email to everyone saying if they ever missed another meeting again, they would be fined $500. Is that even legal? Thanks so much! LauriieJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: GAJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: at will, and I started contract but went full time. I;d also like to say I was contract there only, but don't know if HR can specify that if called.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just that I have never had any run ins, negative feedback, etc, but have been frozen out of vital meetings, email chains and conversations from the get go.JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: What should I do next?

I have a question about a promised health insurance premium

I have a question about a promised health insurance premium benefit paid on my behalf at 30 years. The insurance premium was supposed to be paid, but at 28.5 years my employer "merged" with another employer, and those not already employed for 30 years were not eligible. Is this true? Does in come under this: "The ADEA provides that an employer cannot reduce health or life insurance benefits for older employees." Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: I have worked for Poudre Valley Hospital since 1986. I was looking forward to my health insurance premiums being paid after my 30 year anniversary, but the benefit was severed in the year of 2015. My employer "merged" with University of Colorado Health. This "merger was not considered a "buy out"' and I feel that it was a violation of an employment agreement.

I was hired by Lombardi caterers as a salaried employee , I am 59 years old working sometimes 14 hour shifts without a break which caused me get run down and get sick , when i miss a day from being sick he would cut my pay. after a month he called me into his office and told me that he feels at my age i can not keep up with the pace and stating that his payroll is too high. I told him who can work like that working those hours without a break. His reply was its only going to get worse. He then said he made a decision that he was moving me to another location where it would be easier and cut my salary by 30,000 a year. I was hired at 90,000 as a manager. I feel I have discriminated against because of my age. Please advise
