Age Discrimination Class Action Suit in New York Has Settled


A leading waste collection agency has settled a lawsuit brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) on behalf of 21 employees who were allegedly discriminated against as a result of their age.

All of the employees were over the age of 40 and were reportedly terminated or denied job transfers which were offered to younger employees with lesser qualifications. The company also engaged in a form of hazing called "break him off" in which the older employees would be worked to the point of exhaustion.
