Google settles lawsuit over age bias against job seekers

Google agreed to pay $11 million to end a lawsuit accusing the internet giant of discriminating against older job applicants, a deal that amounts to an average payout of more than $35,000 for 227 people who joined the class action.

The settlement also calls for the Alphabet Inc. unit to train employees and managers about age bias, to create a committee focused on age diversity in recruiting and to ensure that complaints are adequately investigated. [Bloomberg]

Not just google, it’s everywhere. As soon as you have sound effects when getting up in the morning, you are as good as dead to the job market
