Lawsuits accuse IBM of widespread age discrimination

In March, the nonprofit newsroom ProPublica released an exposé on alleged age discrimination at IBM. In May, a 60-year-old IBM employee from Texas who was laid off last year filed a federal lawsuit accusing the company of targeting older workers for layoffs. Now, three former employees from New York have filed a class action complaining that they, too, were laid off because of their ages, which range from 55 to 67.

Can employers legally target online job ads to younger workers?

After a layoff, one 45-year-old woman pored over online job ads every day searching for something equivalent to what she had been doing before. Strangely, there seemed to be no job openings despite a strong economy. Finally, someone from her old union clued her in on the fact that job recruiters are known to target online ads exclusively to younger people. Someone her age might not be given a chance to see the available opportunities.

Suit: Volkswagen sheds 'old diesel image' with age discrimination

A former assistant manager in logistics at Volkswagen AG's Tennessee plant claims he was demoted after the company decided it needed to shed its "old diesel image" and re-brand itself as a "modern, young company focused on productivity, efficiency and technology." That effort involved a company-wide effort to get rid of older workers, he claims in a lawsuit.

Age discrimination can take many forms. A company may not hire workers over a certain age, or may not allow older workers into job-training programs. A supervisor may make repeated references to an employee's age with comments such as, "Isn't it time to retire?"
