If an emloyee over 40...
If an emloyee over 40 was terminated and can prove that 22 employees in their district was terminated or forced to resign who were over 40 within a 2 year period; that the employee was replaced by someone half their age; and the employee received above standard performance evaluations all previous years (even the one given the current year by their district manager was excellent) yet within 6 months was written up and declared to be a poor performer. Can also prove that 10 others managers were terminated or forced to resign within the same 12 month period, does that employee have an age discrimination case.

Hi, My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provided you with Excellent Service,

 

It certainly sounds like age discrimination and that you have a pretty good case against the employer. I think what would give you an almost 100% guarantee of winning a wrongful termination case is if you got a few of the other employees who were over 40 and were let go, to also file a formal Complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC"). The EEOC will investigate and then issue you a "Right to Sue" letter. The formal Complaint ("Charge") must be filed within 180 days of the event which was a discriminatory act against you.

I have a question about age discrimination. With both
I'm 65 years old. I gave a year's notice (January 2017) from my job because I'm the EA to the president of our company. That is what other EAs at the position have done. A few weeks after I gave notice they posted my job and hired someone immediately. She's 40 years old. I told them it was way too soon and I had given notice as of March 31, 2018. They told me not to worry that I would have my job until I left. They immediately had me train her and told me to find special projects to work on until I leave. I told them no that it was my job until I left. They told me to work on special projects and then just go home and travel, play with grandkids, whatever. My boss said it was a sweet deal and I should take it. I couldn't get him to put anything in writing. So now I have completed 5 special projects. The CEOs office is planning a retirement party for me December 15 and I will just stay home until March 31 and get my pay and benefits. Today the HR manager said I misunderstood and there were other projects to work on. I am just done with their lying and taking my job and giving it to someone else. What are my options?… read more
