Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.

Your first step here is to file discrimination complaint with EEOC.You can claim age discrimination and other categories here if you were wrongfully terminated.You can also file a civil suit as well for wrongful termination based on these grounds.

Age Discrimination & Work Situations

The law forbids discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.

Age Discrimination & Harassment

It is unlawful to harass a person because of his or her age.

Harassment can include, for example, offensive remarks about a person's age. Although the law doesn't prohibit simple teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that aren't very serious, harassment is illegal when it is so frequent orsevere that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or when it results in an adverse employment decision (such as the victim being fired or demoted).

The harasser can be the victim's supervisor, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, or someone who is not an employee of the employer, such as a client or customer.

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
