Thread regarding Pioneer Natural Resources Co. layoffs

Age discrimination is out of hand

Just look around you - what's the one thing you notice? The faces that are looking back at you are getting MUCH younger after every layoff, and older employees are few and far between.

Is there really nothing to be done about this? It's certainly not legal, so why is it allowed to keep happening?

Unfortunately these companies are very good at covering themselves. The goal is to get rid of senior people but they will-sacrifice enough youngsters to cover their tracks. We all know their game. Also they will go in and write notes in the file about you. Such as “ he or she was a poor communicator “ or some other BS.

The thing about age discrimination is that eventually it will catch up to the younger workers. What you need to remember is that your company does it...and don’t think you can be there until you retire. Plan for it. Always hard to prove

Hell , if EEOC actually had any gazpachos they would investigate them all - same story on every board.

Noble Energy laid-off all of the “old” people back in 2015. Now being investigated by the EEOC. Noble is a garbage company.

NOT ENFORCEABLE AGREEMENTS - read below...


Age Discrimination

Magistrate Judge Timothy Rice ruled that the release agreement provided to and signed by a former AT&T employee, Alison Ray, violated federal age discrimination law and was therefore invalid and unenforceable

You know it, i know it, they know it - and we all know you can’t prove it. I didn’t do it, no one saw me do it, you can’t prove anything.

It is absolutely age discrimination but likely justified as that demographic carries the highest labor cost. Probably could still prove it in court though based on the age breakout from the 500 PXD lotto winners. They should have offered VSPs in the second round to a larger footprint including younger employees. Because I would have accepted and got the heck out of here.

It’s just so wrong! “They should make it illegal or something.” But like was said, it’s difficult to prove, and nothing will be done about it. Don’t bother trying. Just move on to a field where experience is appreciated. Yes I know that isn not very many choices.

Why is SS saying he gave voluntary sep pkgs to execs? They were given to 55 and older, execs or not. A targeted age. That should be illegal.

Forget about it. You live and work in Texas. It's almost impossible to prove in court. Most lawyers really do not want to fight or try and prove it. HR and Legal are brilliant and very cleaver when it comes to this. And finally the icing on the cake they got the Texas state politicians on there side.

Forget about it.

Yes, blatant age discrimination. Something done about it? Nope. My long held political beliefs have changed after seeing this play out over and over.

The time will come when all of those young faces will be 50+ years old and they will be cut. Then they will be saying the same thing you are saying.
