I need to know if I have any re-course against an employer I

I need to know if I have any re-course against an employer I interviewed with. I feel I was discriminated. I am a 60 year old Female.I submitted my resume, was contacted by the Co. Recruiter,had a phone interview with the Co. Recruiter, he said he was impressed, I met all the job requirements. He scheduled a face to face interview with one of the Dept. Managers.The interview went well, the manager told me that she would need to schedule another interview with her Manager, (The actual hiring Manager )as she would be the one to make the final decision. She would contact me within the week for a time.I was never granted an interview with the hiring manager, instead, I received a rejection letter, (I didn't have the work experience or knowledge for the position).I contacted the recruiter as I thought the letter was sent in error. I asked the recruiter for an explanation, as it was not a reason for rejection. He came back with another response (The Managers did not think you were a good fit, you would be more suited to work else where, vise versa.)Once again I contacted the Recruiter, I reminded him that I only met one Manager, not the Manager who makes the decision.I have trouble accepting the fact that I was pre-judged and dismissed without having the opportunity to meet the hiring manager as promised. They formed an opinion on my behalf, for the record, I personally thought I would fit in.Once again, I sent a final e-mail to the Recruiter requesting that he elaborate on why they thought I would not fit in , I needed to know so that I could prepare myself for future interviews.As of today, I have not received a response, the e-mail was sent 8/16/16Please advise. Thank You Ann **********************

I was fired recently and want to find out if I can sue.

I was fired recently and want to find out if I can sue. First of all I have a medical condition that causes short term memory loss and my medication I take it clouds my ability to think straight, My employer for 18yrs in June of this year wanted to suspend me, and the company manager brought up my health conditions and said I should get my health problems taken care of. I have been under treatment for 3yrs and my physician has been adjusting my medications. I was told to take the time off or be fired. I was given a day off to think about it. i texed the office manager back and see they wouuld have to fire me. Then I received a text from the manager we never wanted to fire me and I could come back and work elsewhere in my office and wouldn't be In charge of anything. In 18yr I had never been written up. The day I came back I was told I had to sign two incident reports or I couldn't come back. I signed because I needed employment. Then I was fired today for a possible hippa violation. I posted a picture of a patient's father and me on facebook. I said he was a great person and I have been taking care of his son since his birth. I've already been told that this was not a violation. Could I get some advice?

I am 70 years old, female of Asian decent and have been with this company for 18 years. Recently, I was called by the HR in the presence of my immediate supervisor with the VP of our department. During the meeting, the VP verbally advised me that I will be demoted from Group Leader, Analytical Services to a Senior chemist with a 20% reduction in pay. There are no written warning that a demotion is coming and that the person was already hired for my position as Group Leader starting August 15, 2016. I would like to know if I my legal rights were violated and what are my options.Thank you for your response.

If your HR representative said they saw you during your lunch having a beer and was close enough to identify it but did not approach or say anything to you and allowed you to go back to work then fired you later that day since they didn't comply with the law ( OSHA law ) can you file wrongful termination? And if so on the grounds of what? Also should you report them?
