Age and Gender Discrimination Suit Against Fox News

Catherine Herridge, a reporter at Fox News, claims that she was subjected to gender and age discrimination and that when she complained to Fox, she suffered from retaliation. Fox News denies these charges.

In 2008, Herridge's employment contract was up for renewal. Fox insisted on putting language in her employment contract which would restrict her from making any employment discrimination complaints in the future. Because she refused to sign the contract with such language included, Fox claims she became an "at-will" employee without any job protections.

It was only after Herridge filed a charge of discrimination with the EEOC, and an EEOC investigator conducted an on-site investigation, that Fox agreed to take out the retaliatory language and presented Herridge with a new employment contract.
