EEOC Files Age and Sex Discrimination Suit Against New York and New Jersey Agency

The EEOC filed an age and sex discrimination suit on behalf of four female lawyers against the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, alleging that the agency fired senior lawyers and hired younger, less experienced ones within months, and that it paid male lawyers thousands more than their female counterparts.

In its filings, the EEOC pointed out a statement made by an executive that the agency was going to be remade with "young fresh faces." The Port Authority had also issued a memo in 2007, discussing the difficulties in its "ability to seek out, attract and retain young attorneys." A spokesman for the agency declined to comment.
