our firm decided to cut the secretarial staff in half. If we don't accept the buyout, the firm will make cut baesd on certain criteria: retirement age, years of service and skill set. Most of us have only done litigatiob. However, there are a couple who can accommodate other practice groups. My big concern is that partner secretaries would be spared regardless of skill set. I've never worked with or given the opportunity to pair with any other practice group. They know I have a disability. I am concerned of being on the short list because of it an that I don't have the protection of a partner, but I have an excellent record a a lit secretary. Could I have an ADEA claim if they cut me as opposed to one with less experience who works for a partner?
