The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit recently reversed a district court’s ruling in favor of Frito-Lay, finding the company had not provided non-discriminatory reasons for allegedly failing to promote a former employee due to his age.

Brian Waggoner, who was born in 1979, filed an age discrimination lawsuit against his former employer, Frito-Lay, in December 2020 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas. Waggoner started working at Frito-Lay’s Topeka plant as a part-time sanitation worker while he attended college in 2004. Following graduation, he was promoted five times up to a process support manager, a “level 9″ manager position, according to the appellate court’s opinion filed April 17.
