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

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

I'm 55 and for the last 9 years I was in a "credit manager"

I'm 55 and for the last 9 years I was in a "credit manager" position and was recently laid off for position elimination. My third party vendor I've managed had decided not to renew their contract, but ongoing rev/share continues as well as other systems work for billing. In the last 9 months I've been getting cross trained in various other third party billing relationships. They provided a rather meager severance package but otherwise it was an amicable separation. I was speaking with a former coworker and they mentioned that my position has been posted for rehire. This is within a week of laying me off so I looked it up and the job description is exactly what I was doing, but it appears that it's for a much lower compensation...."credit specialist". Since it appears that me being laid off is related to my compensation and age and not position elimination should I file an EEOC complaint?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: No union full time....I believe texas is an at will state.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That's about it
