EEOC Finds IBM Guilty in Massive Age Discrimination Case
The EEOC has found that IBM committed age discrimination to the tune of thousands of employees throughout 2013-2018. The determination follows a similar finding to a ProPublica report from 2018. EEOC found evidence of a pattern of workers 40+ being forced out and told their skills were obsolete, only to be brought back later as contract employees at a lower pay rate. EEOC must attempt to mediate a settlement between IBM and the former employees, otherwise IBM may find itself faced with a federal lawsuit.
