Q: If I am demoted and a younger employee is given my job is that discrimination?
A: The fact that you were demoted and someone who is significantly younger than you could suggest age discrimination. However, I would need a lot more information to be able to assess that potential claim. I suggest that you contact an employment lawyer to schedule a consultation.
The facts that you detail could support a claim for age discrimination as you are being less favorably than a younger employee. For more information regarding age discriminator see this link. http://www.job-discrimination.com/age-discrimination.html/
Feel free to contact our office to provide more details so that we can evaluate the entire situation.
