Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello Mary and thank you for your question. Employers often find a way to make work difficult for older works with the intent of convincing them to retire, resign, etc. in order to cut costs. If you feel there might be age discrimination involved, you can certainly consider filing a complaint with the EEOC(Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). They may investigate the situation and attempt to resolve it. You could also consider a transfer request and/or discuss with HR. This is a tough call, but from a legal view, it is my opinion that illegal age discrimination is often involved, I hope this helps(?) and ask for your positive rating.
