  • Allstate Insurance Company just settled an age discrimination suit for $4.5 million.
  • The EEOC just filed a class action against AT&T, alleging discrimination against older workers who left under an early retirement plan.
  • A Columbia, South Carolina disability services provider will have to pay $80,000 and furnish other relief to settle an age discrimination lawsuit, after allegedly refusing to hire a 73-year-old man for a position because of his age.

And now there's new legislation under way to make it easier for older employees to claim age discrimination: Protecting Older Workers Against Discrimination Act.
