I am 59 years old and a professional Aerospace Senior Quality

Customer Question

I am 59 years old and a professional Aerospace Senior Quality Engineer. My performance evaluations have always been acceptable and meets expectations.
18 months ago, I was laid off due to a reduction in force (February 2014). 4 months later in May of 2014, the Quality Manager hired a new Quality Engineer. Obviously the reduction in force was incorrect.
I was never notified my department Manager needed to hire a Quality Engineer and would have returned if I had been notified. It appears the reason I was laid off was not due to an actual reduction in force. I believe my employment was terminated due to age and my salary being too high.
1. How much time is acceptable to hire a new employee after a reduction in force?
