An age discrimination suit by five hospital employees has been settled for $220,000, according to an EEOC press release. The employees, who had worked in the hospital's operating room from between 11 and 24 years as surgery aides and anesthesia technicians and were all between the ages of 46 and 56, claimed that they were laid off as part of a "restructuring plan" and replaced by younger workers in their 20's and 30's. The $220,000 is supposed to compensate them for their lost wages. In addition to paying the $220,000, the hospital is required to provide training on age discrimination and retaliation and to file periodic reports with the EEOC.
