Violations of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act

“The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)… resolved a class action employment discrimination lawsuit against Morristown, N.J.-based Honeywell International, a global diversified technology company with over 100,000 employees in 95 countries. EEOC’s litigation alleged violations of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) (29 USC § 621-634, et. seq.) at the company’s headquarters and various regions nationwide by representatives of the former AlliedSignal Automotive Aftermarket (the makers of consumer car care items such as Prestone and Fram products), which Honeywell, Inc. acquired during a 1999 merger. According to EEOC’s suit, a class of sales managers and representatives were either terminated or demoted in 1997 because of their age during a companywide reorganization. Assertedly, in many instances, younger workers with less experience were retained and/or offered those positions. The suit was filed in federal district court in New Jersey by the agency’s Philadelphia District Office.”
