Hello and welcome,

Do you have any reason to believe you may have been discriminated against on the basis of your race, age (40 or older), gender, disability, or something else?

I see.

Because of your age, you may have a complaint for age discrimination for which you could seek lost wages and benefits.

If the employer replaces you with a significantly younger employee or there is other evidence they have engaged in age discrimination, then you should file a complaint with the EEOC or state fair employment and housing commission.

Additionally, the employer must typically provide you with your final check upon termination under CA law. If the employer did not pay all of your compensation upon termination, file a complaint with the state labor board.
