HPE, HP Sued for Elbowing Out Older Employees

HPE and HP are facing a potential class action lawsuit brought earlier this month by four former employees. The companies engaged in widespread age discrimination during a restructuring of the legacy computer and printer manufacturer, according to their complaint. HP from 2012 to 2015 made a series of discriminatory job cuts involving tens of thousands of workers, the suit alleges. Cuts made late last year, when the company split into two separate units, reflected a well-publicized effort to become “younger,” according to the complaint.

The news came on the heels of a blockbuster first quarter earnings report. The plan calls for Facebook to offer non-voting Class C capital stock, which will allow CEO Mark Zuckerberg to pursue his long-term vision, as well as outside philanthropic work, while protecting Facebook from a dilution of voting stock and mitigating risk of a succession plan.
