Intel faces age discrimination allegations following layoffs

Intel’s push for greater diversity hasn’t helped it avoid trouble. The Wall Street Journal has learned that the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is investigating claims that Intel’s large-scale layoffs discriminated against older employees. In a May 2016 round that cut 2,300 workers, for instance, the median age of those let go was 49 — seven years older than those who remained. The EEOC hasn’t decided whether or not it will file a class-action lawsuit against Intel, but the affected people will be free to pursue civil lawsuits if the regulator doesn’t find enough evidence to pursue its own case.
