Workers' Explicit Emails, Not Age, Led To Discharge

Ogletree Deakins • December 19, 2011
A federal appellate court recently dismissed a lawsuit brought by a group of four workers over 50 who claimed that they were terminated in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). The Third Circuit Court of Appeals held that the workers failed to rebut their employer's legitimate, non-discriminatory reason for their termination _ sending sexually explicit emails in violation of company policy.
