Heidi Macomber reads a 4/1/2020 EEOC bulletin re: EEOC SUES TELLURIDE EXPRESS FOR AGE DISCRIMINATION. PER THE EEOC, TELLURIDE EXPRESS Refused to Hire Driver Because of His Age, Federal Agency Charges

The EEOC filed a lawsuit against an employer who violated federal law when it refused to hire a shuttle driver applicant because of his age.

   The EEOC alleges such conduct violates the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). The EEOC sued in U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado (EEOC v. San Miguel Mountain Ventures, LLC, Civil Action No. 1:20-cv-00881) after first attempting to reach a pre-litigation settlement through its conciliation process. The lawsuit seeks monetary damages for Webber as well as injunctive relief prohibiting Telluride Express from discriminating based on age in the future.
