He Aged A Lot In Two Weeks


When you are fired within 2 weeks of being hired, it just seems a stretch that you are a victim of age discrimination. But the erstwhile manager of the Gramercy Park outpost of the Heartland Brewery, Mostaf Ahmed is making that claim according to this story in the New York Post.

Although there may well be more to the story than this, and in fact almost certainly is, many courts would be inclined to employ the "same actor" inference, and assume that someone doesn't go from hiring to firing someone because of their age in a two week period.
