The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Settles Age Discrimination Lawsuit
Oct 1 15
The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has reached a $37.25 million settlement with 129 former employees who claimed they lost their jobs because they were too old. The 129 workers sued the lab for age for age discrimination in 2008. They were among 430 laid off in 2007 as the lab was moving away from nuclear weapons research and beginning joint operation by the University of California and commercial firms including Bechtel National and Babcock and Wilcox. In 2013, the claims of five lead plaintiffs were litigated in two separate jury trials. In the first trial, addressing the workers' employment contracts, the five plaintiffs were awarded $2.73 million in damages. The lab prevailed in the second trial, which centered on claims the lab discriminated against older employees in making layoff decisions. Both verdicts were appealed. All sides spent months of mediation before the $37.25 million settlement was reached. The money will be distributed according to the workers' pay rates and years of service with the lab.
