IBM Facing Age Discrimination Lawsuit After Laying Off Thousands
spacer image
IBM is facing a class action age discrimination lawsuit after it laid off thousands of employees. According to the complaint, filed by three former employees in federal court in Manhattan, "IBM has discriminated, and continues to discriminate, against its older workers, both by laying them off disproportionately to younger workers and by not hiring them for open positions." The lawsuit cites a shift in IBM’s focus to recruit millennials “in order to make the face of IBM younger, while at the same time pushing out older employees."
