No­vo Nordisk wins age bias suit with the EEOC in New Jer­sey fed­er­al court

No­vo Nordisk is off the hook in a 2022 fed­er­al law­suit filed against the com­pa­ny by the US Equal Em­ploy­ment Op­por­tu­ni­ty Com­mis­sion (EEOC).

Last year, the com­mis­sion went to bat against the phar­ma gi­ant for age dis­crim­i­na­tion in the case of 62-year-old obe­si­ty care spe­cial­ist Deb­o­rah Hunter, who ac­cused the com­pa­ny of age dis­crim­i­na­tion when she got passed by for a lat­er­al trans­fer back in 2018, de­spite the fact that she had a com­mute of more than 50 miles to and from work, and re­sult­ed in one dis­trict man­ag­er los­ing his job, ac­cord­ing to the com­plaint.
