Sprint-Nextel Age Discrimination Settlement

Posted by Frank Steinberg | May 21, 2007 | 0 Comments

AP reports that Sprint-Nextel has agreed to settle a class action suit that claims that it committed age discrimination against some 1700 plaintiffs during a downsizing that took place from late 2001 until early 2003.  The amount of the settlement is $57 million. 

This case follows closely the settlement of another case making same kinds of claims for about $5.5 million. 

Sprint-Nextel denied any wrongdoing, saying that it wanted to put the matter behind it so it could continue with business.
