Battling Age Discrimination and Unjust Termination
Based on the facts she's presented, Ms. A asserted several legal claims against the agency, including:
- Discrimination and Wrongful Termination Due to Age: Ms. A contended that her age, 55 years old, placed her in the protected age group, and she consistently performed at or above the company's standards. False accusations regarding her absence from the office were used as pretexts to issue warnings, all orchestrated to push her out of the company due to her age.
- Retaliation: Ms. A also contended that her treatment was retaliation based on her exercise of FMLA rights and legally authorized sick leave. Her termination directly resulted from her health-related absences.
We first met Ms. A after her original attorney had sadly passed away. We took over the MCAD file and entered an appearance on her behalf. After reviewing the complaint, position statement and rebuttal in MCAD, we entered into mediation with the agency and were able to obtain a favorable settlement of her claims.
