TROY, Mich., March 2, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Michigan based civil rights law firm, Akeel & Valentine, PLC, has filed an age class action discrimination lawsuit against FCA.
The lawsuit claims that employees ages 55 and older have been discriminated against during their performance evaluations. The lawsuit further claims that as a result of receiving poor ratings, employees in the class have experienced losses in merit pay, bonuses and termination.
These allegations are similar to a recently filed class action discrimination lawsuit against FCA on behalf of African Americans. Both suits stem from the FCA's human resources own findings that older age employees and African American employees have been adversely affected for at least the years of 2014 through 2017.
The suit is currently pending at the United States Federal Court, Eastern Division. Copies of both FCA lawsuits are available at https://www.fiatchryslerclassaction.com/.
