    The statute of limitations depends on the circumstances. In New Jersey it appears many circumstances have a 2 year limit. An age discrimination complaint likely fits in the 2 year category.

    Why do you think age discrimination had anything to do with your termination?

    From the document linked above:

    "Judicial Remedy: In the alternative, an individual who believes he or she has been discriminated against in violation of the LAD may file a complaint and try his or her case in New Jersey Superior Court. Individuals usually hire an attorney to represent them in a Superior Court action. A party cannot file with the Division on Civil Rights and in Superior Court at the same time. A Superior Court action must be filed within two years from the act of discrimination."

    It appears to me you still have another year. If you intend to take action you will need legal counsel. The attorney you choose can quickly set you straight on any time constraints.

    Mea culpa. I read the first paragraph but not the second.
