A lawsuit was brought against the Dole Food Co. which claimed that the time spent getting into and out of the mandatory safety equipment was time-consuming and resulted in unpaid overtime.

Woman terminated, alleges due to age discrimination

A woman in her 70s was working in a dentist's office, where she had been working for over 20 years, during which time there were no recorded disciplinary actions taken against her. In late December of 2010, she mentioned to her employer that she was contemplating retirement in the next few years. One day in mid-January of 2011, she asked to leave work early as she was feeling under the weather, not expecting to be fired for doing so.
