Do I have reason for legal action?

I was forced to resign a dental assistant position after 41 years (20 with the one doctor and 21 with this office) at age 59 due to a hostile work environment. I now am having a hard time finding a job and even when I do find one I will take a significent decrease in pay. There was no reason for letting me go. I just got caught up in office drama. I have copies of evaluations that were presented to me that have no complaints at all. I never called in sick. I was usually the first one there and the last one to leave. I had planned on working there until retirement.Since I was forced to resign I have had to start taking an anti depressant as well as meds to help me sleep due to stress & anxiety. My last few years of work have been cut short in the blink of an eye. This office bullies employees if you are not in the popular group which includes anyone who will get drunk with the boss and often they act very inappropriately. Do I have reason for legal action?

I’m terribly sorry for what you have gone through and how it has affected you mentally. Not being a lawyer myself, I’d suggest consulting with an employment lawyer to see if you have reason for legal action. I might also suggest a counselor to help with your stress, anxiety, and problems with sleep.
