U.S. Chamber files motion to file amicus brief with district court

June 14, 2005

NCLC joined McDonald’s in urging the district court to certify the court's novel ruling in this case for interlocutory review by the Eleventh Circuit. The district court had ruled that under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), employees receiving releases in a force reduction were entitled to demographic information about employees who they were not compared with for purposes of force reduction selections. Employers throughout the nation have uniformly limited this data to employees within the applicable “decisional unit” for force reduction selection purposes.
