The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed suit against Asian World of Martial Arts, Inc. on behalf of Morris Pashko for violating the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. According to the suit, the company's president had implemented a mandatory retirement policy , which resulted in the termination of every employee over the age of 67. Mr. Pashko was with the company for over twenty years.
In 2009, 22,778 age discrimination charges were filed with the EEOC, which further demonstrates just how prevalent age discrimination is in the workplace.
Schwartz Perry & Heller LLP has unique experience in the field of age discrimination and regularly lectures on the subject at Bar Associations and CLE events.
