When did age become a liability at Humana?

Don’t be fooled. Humana is targeting older workers for layoffs, which is sad, since we make the majority of our money on our Medicare Advantage Programs. Many law suits are pending as well as cases with the EEOC. Humana targets the older workers due to their salary and their age. Many of the impacted workers have outstanding work performance and are performing well. This is Just a way for them to cut cost
5xky...That is clearly discriminatory. Different benefits than colleagues...btw. Humana is in the radar. Filed EEOC complaint. Until good people speak up, this will not change.
A good friend was Riffed the other day. She is in her low 50's and had been with Humana for over 25 years. She was told that instead of the 2 weeks of severance per year of service that others were getting, she was only going to receive 1 week per year. I think that is totally unethical, at the least, of them to do that. Possibly illegal also..
Unrelated to that, I have also heard rumors of another RIF is possible at the end of December... I don't know how reliable that info is though.
Age discrimination is present both at Humana and in the job market. I was rigged last year and despite glowing recommendations and experience, all I heard was "overqualified" and we want with another candidate after hundreds of applications . Good luck to everyone rigged this year. I hope you have better luck finding a new job!
I enjoy my work with Humana. I would like to share that I am older and have always been treated with much respect by my teammates and leadership. I understand the concern for ageism in business, but also feel that my knowledge, experience/professional experience sets me apart from younger individuals in my profession. I have thought about all of those impacted by the latest workforce reduction all week. I wish everyone well! The job market is tremendous right now, I do feel there are opportunities available in so many arenas. Good luck!
Once again younger people on my team were impacted and I survived. I am no spring chicken.
I am also 65 & work with several other associates over 65. We’ve not seen any age discrimination at Humana. I was hired when I was 57, and competed for that position with several much younger candidates. Unless you work there, you shouldn’t make blanket statements that are not true
It's really not age discrimation, it's salary discrimination. Older people have been around longer and have higher salaries, as a rule.
Yes age does matter sadly. That has happened several times in the 10 yrs I have been here. Anyone that says different has their head in the sand.
Well I'm 65 and I have several friends formerly employed at Humana my age of course. And we'll all be glad to share with you the albeit subtle age discrimination at Humana.
Not true. I have a friend in each of the last two RIFs who are 69+. One retired less than a year after not being RIFd and the other will retire next spring. Don’t spread lies.
