Feeling Discriminated? Document, Document, Document.

Hello Jobcasers,

I have seen a few posts as of late regarding people feeling they are being discriminated against.

I am not here to tell you that you are or are not being discriminated against; I am here to tell you that you need to record (to the best of your ability) your experiences at each stage of the hiring process. I also highly recommend you keep a copy of the job description and the resume/job application used to apply.

Do your best to recreate the events of each interview and everything said, because documentation is imperative to anything. You are unlikely to take an Age Discrimination case far if there is no documentation, but if you can show your that you met (and ideally exceeded) the job qualifications and answered the interview questions well, then you may have a better opportunity at uncovering the truth behind your suspicions of discrimination based on your age.

Once you have documented all of this, speak to an employment attorney and seek their counsel. There is no substitute for the counsel of an attorney.

Let me repeat: THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR THE COUNSEL OF AN ATTORNEY.

Google will not suffice. I will not suffice. Nobody on here (who is not a possessor of a JD degree) will suffice as substitute for an attorney.

I am saying that you should document all of this so that when you do get the counsel of an attorney, they have a better view of your situation and can better help you move forward.

Thank you for reading and I wish you nothing but the best in your pursuit of your next employment opportunity.

Best Regards,

Gage Cherry

Age Discrimination

Someone should enlighten employers not to practice age discrimination against people who are 55 - 60+ years old. I mean, isn't it against the law?

I'm glad my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has my back and will provide the right job for me. #ageism #jobsearch #discrimination

Does Age Discrimination Really Exist?

Hi Folks, I'm 60 years old and got laid off a couple of months ago from my Material Systems Analyst job after 15 years. I'm not yet ready for retirement, but I can't seem to even buy a job! Any advice would be much appreciated as I am very terrified right now.

My boss and coworkers are

I work at a hotel, and they recently opened a new restaurant in our same building. I spoke with the hiring manager at the restaurant about possibly working there part time, and he told me to bring him my resume and we could go from there. When I returned to work after my day off, my coworkers were being kind of rude, and making odd comments and laughing. Someone even tore my name badge off my storage cubical. I didn’t understand what was going on... until I found this:

By the front desk was the resume I had given to the restaurant manager, except it had ‘corrections’ written by my current manager all over it. And as I read it, the jokes my coworkers had been making suddenly made sense- they had read it too!

I’m so embarrassed and violated and hurt. I don’t know what to do.

Any advice? Thank you! #advice #management #bullying #resume #coworkers #discrimination #violation #privacy

How do I get noticed?

I am 57 years old and have been an office manager at this office for 3 years.Prior to that,I was an OM at a same speciality [OBGYN] practice for 22 years. Over the course of the last 2 years ,the practice volume has decreased and now its financially tough. I have offered many suggestions none of which have been considered instead my hours were reduced Now, I am told on Monday, that they are going to lay me off, terminate, etc.... because its financially difficult to pay me and that the office nurse is going to learn my job. She is 25 years younger than me, with no office management experience or skills and she makes $2.00 less an hour than I do. I am also noticing that she has a younger staff member learning an older staff member position. This lady is 68. I think this smells like age discrimination, what do you guys think?

Not Humilated Enough

I worked for a company for 13 years and I just couldn't handle how the supervisor was treating all of us. So I just walked out and never regretted it. I'm still unemployed, but I take online courses. When I applied for unemployment I was rejected so I appealed it and they told me that I wasn't humiliated enough. What? I applied for one job and I considered myself experienced for the position I applied for, the company called me back and told me they hired someone with more experience. I believe it all had to do with age discrimination.
