Customer Question

I am 67. The company I have worked for 20 years was purchased by an international billion dollar company a year ago. My position going forward was not discussed. I was told to keep tracking activity as I had. They hire a person for less than half my salary and trained them on their system. On October 27th I was told the company had decided to eliminate my position. (Sec./Treas. CFO)

I did not intend to retire for another 30 months. Are there grounds for a larger settlement?
