Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello there --
I am sorry to hear about this. There are several factors that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will consider when examining a case of possible age discrimination. Can you tell me --
1. Do you know if others were laid off at the same time and the ages of those workers?
2. DO you know if they brought in younger workers to fill any open similar positions (persons who are under 40)?
3. Were there ever any remarks made to you about your age (even jokingly)?
