KATIE WEAVER HARTZOG (Raleigh) recently obtained a “No Cause” finding from the EEOC with regard to a charge of discrimination made by a former employee who claimed that her employment was terminated due to her age.  The charging party, who was a person over the age of 40, claimed that she suffered from age discrimination because the position which was left vacant due to the charging party’s termination was filled by a younger person.  MS. HARTZOG successfully argued that the charging party’s employment was terminated due to her poor work performance, not because of her age.

The outcome of a particular case cannot be predicated upon a lawyer's or law firm's past results.
