Russell Cawyer Authors Blog on Age Discrimination in Facebook Job Ads

Russell Cawyer's blog post—entitled “New Lawsuit Claims Companies Discriminate Against Older Workers in Facebook Job Placement Advertising” and published on the Texas Employment Law Update—addresses a recent lawsuit filed by three workers and the Communication Workers of America against T-Mobile, Amazon, Cox Communications, and Cox Media Group. The lawsuit alleges that the defendant employers used targeted advertising that systemically excluded older applicants.  This lawsuit serves as a reminder that employers should not place unlawful restrictions on who can view job openings on social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Indeed.
