EEOC Catches Up on Reverse Age Discrimination

Filed under: ADEA, Regulations — Fuguerre @ 8:28 am

This week has taken on age discrimination bookends. We started out on Monday with the 7th Circuit’s reversal of the district court, with the appellate court finding no age discrimination in cash balance plan accruals. We close the week out with the EEOC publishing brief proposed regulations reflecting the Supreme Court’s 2004 Cline ruling that ADEA does not ban discrimination against younger protected workers. [FR Doc E6-13138] See Benefitsblog for background on Cline, where the Supreme Court disagreed with the EEOC and claimants that the company had violated EEOC’s prohibition against discrimination on the basis of age when it eliminated retiree health benefits except for those over age 50.
