An age discrimination suit brought by several hundred former employees against the technology giant, 3M, has been settled for $3 million. The settlement will be paid out to approximately 290 former employees over the age of 45, who were laid off between July 1, 2003 and December 31, 2006. Evidence developed in the case included an e-mail from an employee describing then-CEO Jim McNerney's "vision for leadership development" as "we should be developing 30 year olds with General Manager potential."
