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

So I was terminated from my job. The company wanted me to do extra duties and I did. Just not as fast as they thought. So I go on vacation and come back to getting fired. Since then, finding a great job is hard and I'm blessed to find good work. But applying for county jobs and state jobs, with great benefits don't happen.. Can I file for discrimination or can I file a suit against the company for letting me go like that? Also, I interview well and that's it. Rejected! Is there a statute of limitations on filing? Thanks #termination #advice #discrimination #legal

Just curious...how long had you been on the job before you took vacation? How many days did you take off?

Hi Crystal! I am sorry to hear that! I have worked in restaurants myself and there can be quite a bit of drama! What are you interested in doing now?

My son has an intellectual and severe cognitive disability. When this company hired him, they knew this. The store manager retired after 44 years, and signed another manager.

Today my son went in, he was 15 minutes early, which you would think that would be punctual the manager went and threw a fit over it, demanded that he clocked in, and got verbal with him. My son explained you can't clock in the system won't let you. It won't override it, unless a manager goes through and overrides the cash register that he is on.

My son went out side the store, the manager physically chased him, tried to grab his phone, and tell ME his mom, I advocate for him, because at his age, that's all I can do. He still lives at home, I have a disability myself, and with him and hubby working, it helps out a lot!!! every bit helps out!!! He did his part he called back and demanded to speak to Yasia, yasia went off on him and said you're fired. He asked what reason. She stated for not clocking in 15 minutes early. Why??? the system won't allow it. They only targeted Nate, every one else that WASN'T clocked in was not verbally attacked. That's why I know they attacked him. Karen the manager, has done this now two times.

The first time my son was told that Karen didn't have the authority to fire anyone, so she called Yasia who is now the store manager, over Connie and said you're fired. Nate Demanded to know why he was fired, they refused to tell him. I'm sick and tired of how they target him, anyone else can sit down for 10 minute before they clock in and they don't have an issue. I give up!!! I don't understand how managers can get away with verbal abuse?

The Manager who said that he was fired for not clocking in early, physically made him cry, chased him out of the store, and he had to hide behind the dumpster, to get away from them, so that he would be able to wait for his ride home. She tried to take his cell phone, and said let me TELL WHAT REALLY HAPPENED. This lady is extremely immature. Punctuality is key to most employers, but if the system won't let you clock in, all she had to do was say hey, i'll override it, but she didn't have the authority to do so. So, he wouldn't off gotten paid for that. When someone came and picked him up, he finally calmed down. I know that Ohio is an at will state, but targeting someone that has a disability, this has happened before, per my previous post. What can be done???

He's registered with MRDD, so they provide the transportation. Which is awesome. I am filing a dispute with the labor board, and showing him how to apply for unemployment. I'm also going to HR because this manager has anger management issues, and HR won't do squat about it. If I go to the labor board??? is it possible that they could do something in reference to that??? like say, look at the camera's and see what happened???? They have cameras in the store. And I'm also showing him how to contact the labor board, as well. To see if they are in the right or is he in the wrong??? Please let us know if we have no rights, at all Thanks!!! Please don't be mean, i can't stand it when people pick on people with disabilities. It's not right!!!

In today's world, people want instant gratification. Employers seem to only go with the sure thing. Yes, hiring someone with experience may be a good thing, but how's their work ethic?? Thing is, companies get so caught up in pretty resumes that they overlook a lot of good candidates. I've been getting views on my resume but only one call. This is very discouraging but I just heard on the news that unemployment is at a low for African Americans but I've been unemployed for about close to three months. I know I have the intangibles to be successful no matter what field I'm in but unfortunately, companies aren't willing to bring people in to mold them. I just want the opportunity to earn a living working somewhere I can be proud to make a career out of it. Hoping I can find the right job that fits me because I'm tired of settling for jobs just because I need to earn a living. I need a job that's gonna pay a decent amount per hour and I shouldn't feel as though my only option is Amazon.

I was told my lashes yesterday by a girl looked off, and I didn’t check my lashes, so I’m asking her what’s wrong with them and she says they’re low. So she started dragging it asking everyone to show their lashes, so I move away. Yes my lashes that day was horrible, but the I ask someone I thought was a friend at work what was wrong with them, she said nothing. I left the topic alone, So then the girl told me “your friend told me that you think I don’t like you.” Which I really did tell my friend, but besides the point the girl apologize and I drop the topic, but the I’m hearing the topic isn’t dropped and it’s still going and my so called friend was laughing with the girl about me. So clocked out of work I saw my friend, I was with other workers so I called my friend and asked her a quick question about her talking about me, she denies it. I say ok and move on, then the next day of work I’m still hearing about the topic. I heard she made fun of my Muslim name which is “Hawa”,, I don’t understand how it goes from lashes to my name. She calls me wawa. Then topic now becomes bigger than it needs to be. So I got mad and went off and said fuckin Frustrated, and went off but didn’t hit or threaten anyone , I walked off. So I got fired for “aggressive behavior,” but my bullies did not.

I was falsely accused of discrimination after 18 years of working in my job. They then fired me. After firing me they hung my picture and my husbands picture on the wall with pictures of pedophiles stating that if we show up to call security. We have never threatened them in any way and yet they did this to defame my character after 18 years of giving my everything to this job. It has been more than 6 months, I have never returned to that job and yet my picture still hangs on the wall.

This has been happening numerous of times lately to me. I get an excellent job offer only to lose it after they run a background check. I been working as a server for half a decade and I'm burned out on it but it seems like all that is offered to me is server jobs. I'm college educated in both business and psychology, excellent communicator, manager skills, sales experience, receptionist skills and excel at customer service. Is there anything I can do to get the potential employer to look past that? It is something that occured over 12 years ago a small drug possession charge that still haunts me. I been sober from alcohol for over 7 months and drug free over 5 years. I don't understand why I keep getting beat into the ground over this. Any suggestions to help me would be welcomed. #jobsearch #application #backgroundchecks #discrimination #job #advice #OfficeAssistant #Sales

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.
