If your over 45, your protected from age discrimination. California supreme court already ruled that firing due to salary is equivalent to age discrimination. So if your more qualified than other people kept, and over 45, start the lawsuits. Massachusetts courts always follow California -- #AgeDiscrimination #StaplesLayoffs

Ditto previous commenter. We've seen the previous layoff sheet. There was a range of ages.
I consulted a lawyer about this when I was downsized. There was no argument to be had. Staples made sure to cover their bases. They’ll layoff people from all age groups so you can’t claim discrimination.
