Age Discrimination and Retaliation

Lockheed Martin Global Telecommunications, Inc. settled an age discrimination lawsuit with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), agreeing to pay $773,000 in back pay to eight employees. The EEOC claimed Lockheed Martin violated the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) when it fired the employees, who were between the ages of 47 and 65, during a reduction in force implemented in the COMSAT Mobile Communications Division in October 2000. In 2007, Lockheed Martin paid $131,000 in damages to two employees to settle retaliation claims brought in the lawsuit.
