I was laid off from my job last month and I've been stewing on it ever since. I feel like, based on the way things have been going that they're just using the economy and the lay-offs as a way of getting rid of an 'older' employee. (I'm 61, but very fit). I've had good reviews for the entire 9 years that I've been with the company, and I think I'm a better worker than some younger guys who still have their jobs. They said I could get my job back when things get better, but I know their hoping I'll just go away so they can replace me later with a younger and cheaper worker. But I've been told that proving age discrimination cases is virtually impossible. Is that so? Thanks for any help.
