Maybe.  It's just not that simple.  This fact pattern is common.  Usually there are a lot of additional facts that impact the evaluation of the case, incluidng the differences between your job duties and the younger person who was hired.  If you get called back, you don't really have damages.  I think if you called an attorney, they'd probably tell you to wait and see what happens about your call back. 

I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.
