Court To Consider Age Discrimination Claim Against Google

  • February 4, 2008
The California Supreme Court will hear Google's appeal of a discrimination lawsuit filed by a 54-year-old manager who claims he was fired after a supervisor told him his opinions were "too old to matter," reported The Associated Press.

A court of appeal in October ruled that a jury should determine whether Brian Reid has evidence that Google routinely paid smaller bonuses and gave poorer performance reviews to older managers.

The Mountain View-based company has denied Reid's allegations, but also refuses to say why he was fired. In court documents, the company said Reid was fired when the program he managed was canceled.
