Thread regarding Bank of New York Mellon Corp. layoffs

Age discrimination class action lawsuit (have at it)

These are the law firms that represented IBM employees in a class action age discrimination lawsuit that IBM lost in court.

I got the information for a journalist who wrote about the case. Have fun!

Attached is the EEOC determination letter that lays out its case against IBM. It was filed by the agency's powerful New York office. The New York office director is Judy Keenan. Her phone number is: 929-506-5322. During the next phase of the case, EEOC will negotiate on behalf of a group of ex-employees membership in which the agency decides. You could pursue the issue of joining that case with Keenan.
There are a number of private lawsuits that have been brought against BM in the wake of the ProPublica coverage. They pursue different theories. The lawyer I quoted is Jeff Young of the Augusta, Maine law firm of Johnson, Webbert & Young. His office phone number is 207-623-5110. His email is [email protected] Young's argument is that the IBM separation agreement abridges legally granted rights and so is null.
Shannon Liss-Riordan is a Boston-based class action lawyer who is engaged in two types of legal action, a class-action suit in federal count for the Souther District of New York. Plaintiffs are ex-IBMers who did not sign the separation agreement. In addition, when I last spoke with her she was engaged in mass arbitration proceedings. I'm not sure what the universe of clients are for the latter.
The phone numbers I have for Liss-Riordan are 617-471-1635 and her main office number 617-994-5800. Her email is [email protected]

Retaliation is a serious thing and if you sue and then are fired for no reason or sense some sort retaliation, you can add to the suit and you will be all set!

Just think of all the c-ap you put up with on a day to day basis at your job. Now imagine paying a lawyer your hard earned money in exchange for being a part of a frivolous class action lawsuit that will probably get you fired. Why would someone think this is a good idea again???

You guys are all in fantasy land here. So you mean to tell me that if my manager is making false claims against me that I can just take them to court on harassment charges and it’ll all be taken care of? Really??!! I just go to my lawyer and they will figure it all out?!!!! Really???!!!! Serious charges you say, really?!!!!!

Hahahahahahahaa!!!!!!! Oh man!!!!! What would we all do without this incredible advise?

Not sure about age discrimination but if your manager is seeking false claim against you from your co-workers or your friends, then you can take all of these hungry ghosts who are involved to court on harassment charges, this is a very serious case many don’t know this. Just talk to you lawyer and they will figure it out.

oh that's just laughable. So you think that just because a few lawyers had some success with a case involving IBM that you'd be able to run a successful argument on age discrimination against BNY Mellon? Hahahaha. Good luck with that.
