I am 52 years old and I have been laid off from my job. I earn more than most employees in my position. Can I sue my employer for employment discrimination for firing me?
I have been working in a gym for 2 years as a trainer and before that I worked as a manager of gyms for the last 15 years. They promised me that I would be promoted to be a manager within a year. The new owner of the gym says that I am "too damn old to do the job." I am 42 years old! Is this legal?
To figure out if your discrimination situation is illegal you must determine:
1. If you are an employee protected from discrimination under the law.
3. If your employer's conduct is considered discriminatory under the law.
