Violation of Age Discrimination in Employment Act

General Dynamics settled a lawsuit alleging a violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (29 USC §§ 621-634 et. seq.). “The lawsuit arises out of a l992 layoff that occurred soon after General Dynamics moved its corporate headquarters from St. Louis to Falls Church, Virginia….Laid-off employees under the age of 50 received the full five years of credited service. Employees between the ages of 50 and 55 received less credited service and employees over the age of 55 received no additional credited service under the program…. The EEOC’s complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court in St. Louis, alleges that General Dynamics’ failure to give employees over the age of 50 a full five years of additional credited service constitutes age discrimination.”
