A CBS Executive claims that age and race discrimination contributed to the termination of his job. During his time with CBS, Ghen Maynard developed hit shows such as “Survivor” and “The Amazing Race.” In the lawsuit filed on Monday, he accuses CBS of discriminating against him because of his age and his ethnic background which is Japanese. He alleges that the company decided to eliminate any executives who are over the age of 40. He also claims that the company forced minorities to sit in the back of the room during meetings or excluded them altogether. The CBS executive further alleges that the company claimed that he mistreated a female coworker and began a bias investigation against him, which resulted in no wrongdoing. Despite this, he was removed from a recent “Beverly Hills 90210” project.
Age discrimination may involve workers losing their jobs, being removed from projects, or being subjected to negative treatment by their superiors or colleagues. Any individual over the age of 40 may experience age discrimination, which is unlawful according to the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. Under the law, older employees are protected against this type of toxic behavior.
