Classic case of age discrimination costs Lucent $195,000

A 55-year-old estimator who was laid off after 34 years with Lucent Technologies, based in Murray Hill, won a significant settlement in a textbook age-discrimination case.

The estimator had a long history of good reviews, including one just before he was let go in which his work was rated as “outstanding.” Younger workers with lower ratings were kept on.

Age-discrimination suits are hot. Make sure managers don't factor age into employment decisions.
