Jury awards $545,000 in wrongful termination case

Despite the settled rule that workers cannot be fired based solely on their age, age discrimination can be difficult to prove because other factors, such as poor job performance, are often present. A recent verdict in a wrongful termination case shows, however, that given the proper evidence, victims of age discrimination can succeed in court.

Appeals court allows racial discrimination suit to proceed

We stand up for the rights of aging workers

A recent post on this blog discussed a recent flurry in age discrimination lawsuits in the Silicon Valley, a place known to many Los Angeles residents as the home of high-paying jobs and laid-back company culture.

Whistle blower recovers $20 million after wrongful termination

Employees who complain about the illegal or unethical practices of their employers often face the same fate: they're fired. Many so-called whistle-blowers accept their fate and move on with their lives. Occasionally, however, a whistle-blower will fight back against employer retaliation with striking results. In a recent California case, a woman who had been discharged for calling attention to her employer's questionable sales practices obtained a verdict of $20 million in a wrongful termination lawsuit.

Age discrimination lawsuits arrive in Silicon Valley

The high tech companies that gave Silicon Valley its unique image have always seemed synonymous with youthful hipness and cutting-edge technology. Now, however, the realities of the workplace are beginning to tarnish this image somewhat as aging techies are being laid off and have now begun suing their former employers for wrongful termination and age discrimination.
