I was fired from my job 6 weeks after I had a heart attack. I had only missed 3 days of work when I was in the hospital. I was given no reason for the termination except that it was a business decision, and he had his reasons. They then posted my position and hired a younger person for that job. I am 60 years old. I received a glowing letter of recommendation stating that I was a perfect worker and that they reason I was let go was that they decided they didn't need a rep in my territory anymore. That of course wasn't true, because they hired someone else very quickly. Do I have recourse to sue for age discrimination?
