IBM Wins Employment Cases in Supreme Court

Posted by Frank Steinberg | Jan 17, 2007 | 0 Comments

IBM just had a good day in the US Supreme Court, which refused to review decisions favorable to the computer giant in two cases.  In the first the court refused to review a lower court decision holding that IBM's "cash balance" pension plan does not unlawfully discriminate against older workers.  That saved a potential liability of $1.4 billion (that's billion with a "b").  Not a bad result.

In the second case the high court refused to consider the appeal of an employee who claimed that he was fired in retaliation for his complaints under the Fair Labor Standards Act about IBM's allegedly unlawful failure to pay overtime to some employees.
