I received a phone call from an alleged job agency and was asked a series of questions, such as do I have a diploma or GED I answered a diploma then asked in what year I received it ( I refused to answer) then asked what year I was born ( again I refused to answer) then the call ended.
It doesn't matter whether or not I would have gotten the job, the issue is I was asked questions that are already AGAINST the law to ask in the first place, and that's why I did not answer them.
No, that was not age discrimination. It is age discrimination if you are denied a job or other employment benefits because of your age. All employers learn the age of their employees as they are allowed to ask for birth date information. The key is what is done with that information.
Good luck to you.
