I was hired by a consulting firm to do support member of an activation of an informatics implementation project at a hospital in NY. (The company is based out of Ohio). I am well qualified and provided the job exemplary (per my judgement). Into week one of the 3 week project I was terminated with because I did not know the product. They never offered any specific explanation. I was then (per terms of the contract) expected to pick up the total cost of my return back to Florida. In the meanwhile they kept individuals that were far less eqipped to prepared and experienced than I was. (The hired about 200 consultants). Because of my expertise, I was one of the better paid. The outcome of the termination was very costly. I was the only "fit" person that was terminated in this manner. I amcontinuation... I am over 50 years old, and a Hispanic woman. Do I have cause to (minimally) consider litigation against this group? I could bring others to this action.
