Court Invalidates Non-Compete Agreement for Excessive Restraint of Trade
CT Cellar Doors, LLC v. Palamar, 2010 Conn. Super. LEXIS 3247
Firing to Prevent Pension Vesting, Without More, Does Not Violate ADEA
In this economy, companies are terminating employees in an effort to increase share value or simply improve the bottom line.  Often it is the older, more senior, and more costly employees that are the first to go.  The question sometimes arises: “Can my employer fire me to prevent my pension from vesting (thereby saving itself money) without violating the Age Discrimination in Employment Act?”  The short and surprising answer is “yes,” assuming the absence of other critical allegations necessary to sustain an ADEA claim.
