Hi, my company, a municipal utility in Oregon, are going through layoffs and offering an early incentive
type pay to retire early if one qualifies. I was told I qualified and I applied but they are clear that I can withdraw the application up until the day before I planned on leaving, a date they set. My manager came to my office and said because I applied for the early retirement and appeared to him to be "burned out" I may not have a place in the company and they may be eliminating my position. I'm 58 years old and the person taking over my position and doing the work of two people now is 50. Does this look like age discrimination
JA: Because employment law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will
," union, full time or part time?
Customer: I have no employment agreement, and I work full time. I've been there for 19 years and my performance has always been documented as well above average.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I can't think of anything.
