Ohio-based shoe retailer DSW has agreed to pay $900,000 to seven former managers who were let go during the recession. The settlement covers DSW activities at its home office and throughout its Midwest region, which includes Minnesota.

The seven managers, all age 40 and older, were let go during the recession in 2008 and 2009. They filed age discrimination complaints with the EEOC. DSW elected to settle without admitting wrongdoing.

The company agreed to train all managers in its Midwest region about age discrimination.
