A recent U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit decision, new U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission guidelines and rejection of a 70-year-old law partner’s “mandatory retirement” — maybe “old guys” are getting their revenge for age discrimination at work.
Tonight at 7 on the Philadelphia CNN-News affiliate WFMZ-TV, The American Law Journal presents “Maybe Old Guys Do Rule: The Latest in Age Discrimination at Work.” 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 information behind his multimillion-dollar verdict in the Third Circuit case Marcus v. PQ, which 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.
