CWA sues Amazon, others claiming Facebook job ads allowed age discrimination

The Communications Workers of America has sued hundreds of U.S. employers for allegedly excluding older workers from seeing job recruitment ads posted on Facebook Inc.

The union filed the class-action lawsuit against companies such as Amazon.com Inc., Cox Communications Inc. and T-Mobile US Inc. over charges that their Facebook job ads targeted specified age ranges such as 18-40 or 22-45, at the expense of older workers.

In the lawsuit filed with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, the CWA argued that the practice violates federal, state and local recruitment laws. It added that Facebook continues to profit from such a practice.

The CWA wants the court to declare the exclusion of older workers in seeing the Facebook job ads as illegal, as well as issue an injunction preventing Amazon, Cox, T-Mobile and other employers from continuing the practice. It also demanded compensation for older workers who have been denied job opportunities.

The CWA joined workers Linda Bradley, Maurice Anscombe and Lura Callahan in the lawsuit.

Facebook said on its website that it is "an Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action employer" that does not engage in age-discrimination practices.

Meanwhile, Amazon said it has corrected some of the ads that were "inconsistent" with its recruitment approach, Reuters reported.
