Also, I can only answer the questions you specifically ask and based on the facts that you give so please be sure that you ask the questions you want to ask and provide all necessary facts.

I'm not sure what you mean by "other than legal". Can you explain? Are you asking about remedies or the actual method of getting a remedy?

A written and announced statement of apology, after I have read and approved of what is said, to the congregation would satisfy me. I was dismissed and asked to leave the church in 15 minutes because they couldn't afford my position, only to hire another "younger person" two weeks later...I have written prof of this being said in an email from a church officer..As for legal action, a letter and phone conversation with the Head of Adm. of the church would cause a great response from this "young,first job minister" and his staff.He lied about the reason for my dismissal, was call out about his action by the Ch.of Ch. finance, and next admitted to the congregation he was wrong and ask for forgiveness.....I could care less about him, its is my reputation that I wish to defend.

please answer the question, legally can require written apology, or is it against federal and state law to dismiss one for age discrimination.
Employment Lawyer: Dwayne B., Lawyer replied 2 years ago

No, the court cannot require a written apology s a remedy to a lawsuit.

It is generally illegal to dismiss someone based on their advanced age. However, the courts are reluctant to enforce discriminatory actions against churches som unlike with a corporation, it isn't a guarantee. The courts just started this recently with discrimination based on the Americans with Disabilities Act but I haven't seen it applied to age discrimination cases yet.
