Hello: This is Attorney Phillips. Welcome to Justanswer! I will be assisting you today with your post.

I am sorry to read about your difficulties.

Could you explain more?

Do you have evidence that you and your other similarly situated former co-workers were let go because of your age?

Did you sign separation agreement that waived your rights to file lawsuit against the employer?

Thank you for your cooperation,
