93 Year Old Nurse Sues for Age Discrimination

In a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Miami last month, a 93 year old woman sued Miami Behavioral Health Center, Inc. for age discrimination. Our law firm, Coane and Associates, represents the woman, Rosa Lopez.In the lawsuit, our client alleges that her supervisor told her that because of her age and health, she should retire. The ADEA (Age Discrimination and Employment Act of 1967) prohibits employment discrimination against anyone at least 40 years of age , such discrimination can be in the form of termination, layoffs, wages and promotions.In the case of our client, her supervisor allegedly added new job duties which interfere with her scheduled patients making it seem that she is not capable of fulfilling her work. She was terminated in October 2010, and then filed an age discrimination complaint with the EEOC. Her lawsuit was filed last month, and a trial date has yet to be set.________________________________________________________________________________________________Bruce Coane is a leading lawyer with 30 years of experience in the field of immigration law and employment law.
