A Seasons 52 restaurant.

The national restaurant chain Seasons 52 has agreed to pay $2.85 million to resolve claims it unfairly discriminated against job applicants over the age of 40, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said Thursday.

The EEOC’s settlement with 35 Seasons 52 restaurants requires the company to implement additional mandatory training for employees and managers, hire an external and internal compliance monitor to track progress for three years and create new policies to prevent skewing hiring to younger workers.

Targeting hiring practices is more difficult to prove than discrimination claims brought by current employees. Unsuccessful job applicants often do not file suit. In 2016, there were 2,000 claims of age bias in the hiring process and 10,000 claims from current workers against their employers.
