EEOC Settles Age Discrimination Suit Against Retailer For $50,000.00.
Dillard’s Department Store has agreed to settle an age discrimination lawsuit filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The suit alleged that the retailer fired a 61 year old employee manager, who had 4 years on the job experience and good performance reviews, and replaced her with a 24 year old, who had only 4 months experience. The lawsuit settled for $50,000.00.
Employment discrimination cases are very factually driven matters, and case settlement values can range dramatically based upon the various factors involved.
