Age Can be A Factor in Wrongful Termination. If This Describes You, Talk to Us.
As the company sees the employee costing more money, employers and managers may seek to slowly phase out these employees, seeking to find a way to get them off the books without causing a stir.
Employers often attempt to replace the aging employees with younger and cheaper workers. In sales jobs, this may involve the older, more experienced representative being taken off lucrative territories and the area given to the younger rep.
In other instances, opportunities and training may be provided to younger employees, but withheld from the older worker. Managers and employers may become increasingly picky and critical of the older employee’s work and performance, searching for reasons to terminate or discipline the individual.
