No Pilots Involved in Gulfstream Age-bias Case

Gulfstream Aerospace agreed to pay $2.1 million to 61 former employees–none of them company pilots–in an age-bias settlement with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), but denied that it “engaged in any discrimination based on age, or committed any other violation.” In its lawsuit, the EEOC alleged the Savannah, Ga. manufacturer targeted employees 40 years of age or older during a spate of layoffs in 2000.
