I've worked for the same company for over twenty years. The managers, my bosses, come and go but I've always done well in my reviews and gotten along with my co-workers. I'm 52 years old now and I recently applied for several different jobs within the company as openings developed. These would have been promotions with more pay and responsibility. The new management team did not hire me for any of these jobs and instead hired people in their early thirties. I was told I was not the best candidate. OK. But I don't see how someone who has worked in the company for two decades and in the same department as the jobs that I applied for cannot be a good candidate. Am I correct in thinking that I can sue for age discrimination based on promotions or internal job even though I already work for the company? Thanks in advance.
