Hagemeyer ex-salesman sues company for alleged age discrimination
Harris County resident Odell Hyden sued Hagemeyer North America, Inc., an electrical materials and industrial products distributor, over claims that he was terminated from his position as salesman because of his age, the Southeast Texas Record reported on June 9.
The civil lawsuit, citing age discrimination, was filed in the Southern District Court of Texas Houston Division on May 30. Hyden said in his complaint that he was a salesman at Hagemeyer for over 50 years, but in recent years, he was subjected to negative remarks regarding his age from his supervisors until he was fired from his job on April 3, 2013. His employer fired him for supposed poor performance.
Wrongful termination, which can be characterized by unlawful discrimination, retaliation, or constructive discharge, is punishable by law.
