Were the other 14 seniors as well? Or are they younger volunteers?
I am sorry but I cannot speak to you on the telephone. I know the site offers this service but the site is based in the US. In Canada the rules of my law society prohibit me from speaking to you on the telephone as you are not my client.
I can only speak to you by posting up and back over this site.
But you never answered my question.
Here it is again:Do you have any idea why this happened? Have you asked?
There is no obligation on the part of any organization to retain volunteers they don't wish to have working for them. There is no requirement to provide notice or reasons either.
What they cannot do is dismiss volunteers because of discrimination. So they cannot dismiss someone because of their age, gender, race, colour, religion, marital status, sexual orientation, disability etc. But it doesn't sound like this is what happened here.
It is unlawful if they are telling lies about you and harming your reputation. If that is happening you can sue for defamation and get compensation for damages to your reputation but you've not mentioned that either.
But if this is not discrimination and if they are not telling lies about you there is nothing you can do unfortunately.
Do you see what I mean?
