City Colleges of Chicago to Pay Settlement for Age Discrimination

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed a lawsuit on behalf of Nancy Sullivan, an adjunct professor of English at Harold Washington College, one of the City Colleges of Chicago, after she was passed over for a full-time faculty position in favor of two substantially younger and less experienced candidates.  Ms. Sullivan was 66 and had worked as an adjust professor for five years before she applied for the full-time position.

City Colleges of Chicago will pay $60,000 in monetary relief, and the settlement states that City Colleges must train its employees about age discrimination and report to the EEOC any complaints of age discrimination it receives.
