What does your boyfriend know about the qualifications of the persons who were hired? Might they have more relevant education or experience for the particular position than your boyfriend has? Were they regular permanent employees of the company prior to their selection for this position (i.e. were they internal promotions)? How much younger are the persons who were hired? Your boyfriend will have the burden of proving the discrimination should he wish to sue for illegal age discrimination. This can be very hard to do, especially if the employer can point to anything remotely reasonable for why it made the selections it did, so long as those reasons didn’t involve illegal discrimination.

I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics. If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable. Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.
