Equal Em­ploy­ment Op­por­tu­ni­ty Com­mis­sion brings No­vo Nordisk to court over age dis­crim­i­na­tion case

A 62-year-old obe­si­ty care spe­cial­ist ac­cused No­vo Nordisk of age dis­crim­i­na­tion when she got passed by for a lat­er­al trans­fer back in 2018, re­sult­ing in one dis­trict man­ag­er los­ing his job, ac­cord­ing to a com­plaint.

Three years lat­er, the em­ploy­ee still hasn’t been trans­ferred — and now the US Equal Em­ploy­ment Op­por­tu­ni­ty Com­mis­sion (EEOC) is on the case.

The EEOC filed a com­plaint against No­vo Nordisk in New Jer­sey fed­er­al court on Mon­day, seek­ing re­lief for Deb­o­rah Hunter, a Scotts­dale, AZ woman who’s been an obe­si­ty care spe­cial­ist at the com­pa­ny since 2015.
