Diplomacy - If your last employer is aware of the real reason you left, you should not tell lies to the potential employer. Instead use tact when answering the question, make Good interviewers will pick up on certain comments, phrases and statements and draw some conclusions

You can use the phrase - "I left because I didn't feel comfortable in the position and didn't relate to the manager there very well". If pressed to give a clearer answer use - The manager saw our working relationship for more than what it was and this made me uncomfortable so I felt that it was appropriate to place distance between us "

In these words you are telling the interviewer that a situation was occurring and it wasn't good. So interviewers Will come up front and ask you to be specific - they know what you are saying but WANT you to say it. Again be diplomatic - "someone in the business wanted more than working relationship and I didn't - I felt uncomfortable"

Its a very difficult answer to give for anyone in the same position - Think through WHO will be interviewing you - are they the same sex as you ? - Never, Never blurt out accusations as this could put YOU in poor light

Can asking an employee when she plans to retire be seen as age discrimination?

That depends. Feeling harassed or discriminated against due to age is subjective and varies by individual. The best an employer can due is ask the question under reasonable circumstances, which would be a defense against a discrimination complaint. If the employee is approaching what most people consider retirement age, or if the employee has worked for the number of years to qualify for full retirement benefits, then it would be reasonable for an employer to inquire about the employee's retirement plans because the employer will need to plan for replacing the retiring employee.
