Age Discrimination

Lockheed settled allegations from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that Martin Marietta targeted older employees in layoffs, in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. “EEOC’s suit, originally filed in May 1994, claimed that Martin targeted its employees age 40 and over for a series of massive layoffs and forced retirements over a five-year period. Under the terms of the settlement, which is in the form of a proposed consent decree, Martin will pay $13 million to an estimated 2,000 former employees who were laid off between January 1, 1990, and December 31, 1994, from non-union jobs in Martin’s Astronautics Group. Payments will also go to affected former workers in the Information and Communications System organization of the company’s Information Systems Group working in Colorado.”
