EEOC Files Age Discrimination Suit Against AT&T

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has filed an age discrimination lawsuit against AT&T, alleging that the company discriminated against a class of retired AT&T workers by denying them the ability for reemployment solely because they retired under early retirement plans. The EEOC said the effect of this denial of reemployment results in a disproportionate number of older workers not having the same opportunity to apply for reemployment, in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA).
