On Jan. 15, a temp agency agreed to pay $21,500 to settle an age discrimination suit filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on behalf of a woman who had applied for a job in 2007. Georgia Turner alleged Prestige Staffing refused to refer her for an open clerk position because, according to a company representative, Turner had too much experience, would expect too much money, was expected to retire and was not trainable. Turner filed a complaint with the EEOC, alleging discrimination under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. Prestige argued that its rep's comments were taken out of context and that its client wanted a clerk with less experience. The company also contended it referred Turner for other jobs.
