If a recent U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit decision, new EEOC guidelines and rejection of a 70-year-old law partner’s “mandatory retirement” are any indication, perhaps “old guys” are getting their revenge for age discrimination at work.
At 5:30 p.m. Sunday on the Philadelphia CNN-News affiliate WFMZ-TV, The American Law Journal begins its 23rd season with “Maybe Old Guys Do Rule: The Latest in Age Discrimination.” Joining host Christopher Naughton is employer attorney Anthony Haller of Blank Rome, EEOC attorney Mary Tiernan and employee counsel Scott Goldshaw of Salmanson Goldshaw.
Goldshaw shares pertinent case information behind his multimillion-dollar verdict in Marcus v. PQ that made its way to the Third Circuit. The landmark verdict demonstrates the emerging trend of courts leaning on the “disparate impact” standard in age discrimination matters. And the recently settled EEOC v. Kelley Drye affirmed that a law partner, stripped of his equity status at age 70, constituted mandatory retirement and was therefore discriminatory.
