cathleen reese

in aug.00,3 employees laid off due to cutbacks.all over 45 and all with years of service to company.no notice just to leave at end of day.the main argument i have is younger employees with much less time of service still have their jobs. i have never been written up always showed up on time work history not a tarnish on it. the only option i had was to take a part time position with major cut in pay. why indeed were the younger employees not given this option.also 2 weeks prior the store manager told me i had nothing to worry about that i was not losing my job fooled me.contacted eeoc and still no response.this is in the state of georgia anyone with suggestions are welcome.



"Contacted EEOC . . ." Did you file a formal "sign on the dotted line" Charge?

EEOC investigations take time, particularly if they are understaffed and over-worked. If you filed a formal Charge, call EEOC back and ask what the status of your case is. "Sqeaky wheel gets the most grease."

While it does appear that there is age discrimination, employers are now using a legal defense that older employees make more money, business is bad and the company needs to save money, so that is the "real" reason the older employees were let go.
