You Lockheed Managers and HR at this site are a class act NOT! Collectively you both treated me like a second class citizen when I applied to jobs at the Ft Worth site. You talk it up how Lockheed doesn't Discriminate but once I disclosed to the Lockheed manager and HR Recruiter that I was Disabled the Lockheed HR Recruiter emailed me the following day to cancel my Interview. It has happened to me four times in the exact manner already so that pretty much told me it is a waste of my time applying to jobs at Lockheed because they do in fact discriminate against hiring Disabled people.

Call an attorney if you believe you were discriminated against due to a disability:
Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) (See link listed at the bottom of this message) -
This law makes it illegal to discriminate against a qualified person with a disability in the private sector and in state and local governments. The law also makes it illegal to retaliate against a person because the person complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit. The law also requires that employers reasonably accommodate the known physical or mental limitations of an otherwise qualified individual with a disability who is an applicant or employee, unless doing so would impose an undue hardship on the operation of the employer's business.
this is all over LM - not just Ft. Worth.
If you think that’s discrimination, wait until you’re older. You’ll literally have two targets on your back.
Watched a guy at the Moorestown facility leave because he was tired of the comments about him nearing retirement and being old enough to remember what it was like when electricity was new. First off, that was absolutely inappropriate, yet co-workers and even a manager made these kind of comments on a regular basis. Secondly, the guy was maybe in his mid-40s, and looked like he was in his 30s.
We’re tossing out age-related insults at folks in their 40s now?
Consider yourself lucky - you dodged a bullet in working at this company.
Yeah, if it really happened, take that proof to a lawyer asap.
(Assuming, of course, that the stated duties of the job are such that they can be performed by you alone or with reasonable accommodation. If not, there's no case.)
Share this with an employment lawyer. Might as well give the legal department a headache for your troubles.
