Two Scientists Get $ 6.2 Million Decision in Age Discrimination Jury Decision

Check out this article from Law.Com- 2 Scientists Get $6.2 Million Award in Age Discrimination Suit. Two scientists who claimed they were targeted for termination as a result of their age, and that they were specifically fired for being older workers. As a result of their claims, the jury in this case found in favor of the scientists, and determined that their termination was “willful”, resulting in double damages for the plaintiffs.

This is a promising sign after the Supreme Court has worked to weaken the rights of elderly workers and their rights as employees. Hopefully, more workers will be properly represented in these cases and stand up for their rights against age discrimination.
