A 68 year old Engineer Scientist filed an Age discrimination claime against Boeing who not only gets away with shameless actions but got rewarded attorneys fees in an “ORDER GRANTING JUDGMENT FOR DEFENDANT THE BOEING COMPANY “ DOCKETED ON CM ON April 22 2005.
(PRWEB) April 27, 2005 -- A 68 year old woman, who takes care of her 97 year
old mother and worked for more than 30 years as an Engineer Scientist for the
United States Space Program including National Missile Defense at Boeing was
presented with a layoff notice on April 6, 2001. This layoff notice had a
termination date of June 8, 2001, just five days before her 65th birthday. The
calculated timing of her layoff disqualified her of a retirement plan that could
pay her $1,200.00 monthly plus some health insurance benefit. Instead she is
receiving $725.00 monthly benefits and no health benefits.
On August 2002 she filed an Age discrimination in the United States District Court, Central District of California in Santa Ana. Case Number SA02-753 AHS (MLGx). The Court process became a real life "David and Goliath" where the "Goliath" - Boeing – not only gets away with shameless actions but gets rewarded with attorneys fees in an “ORDER GRANTING JUDGMENT FOR DEFENDANT THE BOEING COMPANY “ DOCKETED ON CM ON April 22 2005.
”David” the 68 years old woman who takes care of her 97 year old mother, with no financial means for hiring an attorney to appeal this case, had to file chapter 7 hopping to save her house, social security and retirement income from Golliat.
