The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recently settled a lawsuit for $390,000 and other relief against BMW Cleveland, in which the EEOC alleged that the company had subjected three of its employees to age discrimination. The EEOC’s lawsuit claimed that BMW Cleveland refused to hire one of its former employees because of her age (52), and that it also fired two of its other employees due to their ages (67 and 70). This alleged conduct would be a violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, which prohibits discrimination, including a refusal to hire, against employees or prospective employees due to their age. See EEOC v. Davis Automotive Group, Inc. t/a BMW Cleveland, No. 1:19-cv-02257 (N.D. Ohio).
