When the EEOC investigated the workers’ allegations, it uncovered what it said was other evidence of age discrimination. For example, it said older workers had systematically been deniedtraining. As evidence, the commission cited executive emails stating “we should be developing 30 year olds with General Manager potential” and advocating “youth as participants in the leadership development.”
The settlement also calls for 3M to train managers on age discrimination issues. The company agreed to revamp termination processes and open jobs to older workers that had previously been off limits.
