Charge Dismissed

Jeff James obtained the dismissal of an EEOC Charge filed against a global client by a rejected candidate.  The candidate had sought a director-level position but did not suitably impress leadership that he was suited for the role.  Instead, he was offered a different role with a slightly lower compensation package than he was expecting.  He then argued with leadership over the terms of the offer, causing them to have second thoughts and rescind the offer.  In response, he filed a Charge of Age Discrimination.  The Illinois Division Office of the EEOC investigated, and ultimately dismissed the Charge after the client presented demographic evidence regarding the ages of its directors, as well as the age of the person ultimately hired into the position.
