Default Re: I was fired because of my age - I am 72.

I wish to inform you that the act of your employer is violative and an action may be taken against your employer. In this, the action of the employer shows policy of discrimination with persons who are older then 40 years. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) prohibits discrimination solely based upon the age of a person. If your employer has terminated you just because of your age then the action of your employer is not correct and your termination can be justified only when your employer shows some other reason.

What proof do you have that you were fired due to your age? Did they actually come out and tell you that is the reason you were being fired? If so, you do have an age discrimination claim.
