Employee Who Lost Job in Company Sale Alleged Discrimination

Summary:


The buyer chose to retain almost three-fourths of the division work force
made available to it, leaving 28% that had the option of entering the
post-sale placement process. After that process was completed, of the
original 1,642 employees affected by the transition, only 5% were not
internally placed. Of those 50-years and older, only about 4% were not
internally placed.

Plaintiff, an over-50-year old clerical worker at a technology company, was one of only five percent of employees who were not retained by either the buyer or the seller of a company division. Plaintiff alleged that she should have been retrained and retained by the seller, but was instead terminated in favor of a younger, more popular employee.
