Issues related to layoffs and age discrimination

A previous post on this blog talked about how a major international company recently found itself in legal hot water because of its recent layoffs. Specifically, former employees over 40 have alleged the company engaged in age discrimination by systemically weeding out older employees via layoffs while actively recruiting younger employees.

IBM sued, facing scrutiny for layoff practices

IBM, a technology company known at one point in time as "Big Blue" and as a manufacturer of personal computers, has had to trim its work force as the marketplace gets more competitive. While layoffs are a natural part of a business's life cycle, in this case, some are accusing the nationally known company of using their layoffs as a way to weed out older workers, which is a form of age discrimination.

At-will termination is not a free pass for employers

While this may have been true in former days, there are now important limits to the employment at-will rule that benefit California workers by giving them some additional protection from losing their jobs unfairly.
