Georgetown Faces Yet Another Major Age Discrimination Lawsuit

Yet more evidence that institutions of higher education blatantly engage in age discrimination in hiring. George Mazza, 62, an attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), has filed a federal lawsuit against Georgetown University alleging he applied for and was denied admission to a university doctoral program in theology studies in the Fall of  2017 because of his age. He alleges a member of the admissions committee “indicated the preeminent selection criterion was whether the admissions candidate would likely find on graduation a full-time tenure track faculty position at a major university.” Mazza states a faculty member who encouraged him to apply for admission to the program, Dr. Peter C.

Interest arbitration and the need for candor

Arbitrator Richard Miller reopened and reconsidered an interest arbitration between Hennepin County, MN and Law Enforcement Labor Services, Inc., Local No. 393, concluding that the County had "purposely withheld" information that had been requested by the Union. In the initial proceeding, Arbitrator Miller rejected the Union's requested wage increase for a unit of Licensed Supervisors, finding: The Union is not a victim of disparate treatment. All County employees were treated the same. The County’s philosophy on collective bargaining was to offer uniform pay increases and benefit improvements across all bargaining units unless compelled by good evidence to do otherwise. …   More importantly, the Employer never deviated from the internal wage pattern unless specific evidence – meeting defined criteria – justified doing so.
