A 70-year old employee of Griffin Dewatering in Houston has filed an age discrimination charge with the EEOC.

This Houston Employment Lawyer filed the charge on behalf of my client who worked at Griffin Dewatering for over 20 years. My client stated that when he refused to retire, the company fired him.

In particular, the charge filed at the EEOC states that he was called in to a meeting with David Singleton (President and CEO) and Michael Bilaki (CFO) and that they “pressured me to voluntarily retire.” When he refused to retire, about two months later, he states that he was fired.

The EEOC charge filed by my client also indicates that since the company changed ownership in 2014, “Generally, these new hires have been in their late 20s or early mid 30s at the time of hire,” as further evidence of age discrimination.

The EEOC investigates charges of discrimination in the workplace. It is expected that the investigation in this case will last throughout 2018.
