Management expert sacked, sues managers for age bias

Rodd Wagner has written best-selling books telling employers how to treat their employees more ethically. That didn’t prevent him from being fired from his job as a management consultant at Gallup, Inc.

Now he is suing the polling and social research firm, which also has a large management consulting practice.

Wagner’s lawsuit, filed in federal court in Minnesota, alleges that he was fired in early 2011 because of age bias. Barring a settlement, the case will go before a jury.

Wagner began working for Gallup in 1999. He authored two books on employee management: 12: The Elements of Great Managing and Power of 2: How to Make the Most of Your Partnerships at Work and in Life.

In his complaint, Wagner notes that Gallup’s own leaders cited the books internally as guides to the standards its managers should apply when interacting with employees.

According to Wagner’s lawsuit, high turnover among his supervisors beginning in 2010 led to mismanagement and, ultimately, his termination.
