Age Discrimination Collective Action Lawsuit

Moldenhauer, for an on behalf of herself and other persons similarly situated, v. Honeywell International, Inc., Court File No., 18-cv-00126 (U.S. District of Minnesota).

On January 18, 2018, we filed a Complaint  against Honeywell International, Inc. (Honeywell) in U.S. District Court of Minnesota alleging a violation of age discrimination laws.

The named plaintiff, a Supplier Engineer, filed her claims individually and on behalf of all similarly situated employees.  The Complaint alleges that Honeywell violated federal age discrimination law when it terminated the named plaintiff and other older workers in a reduction-in-force on or about December 31, 2015; January 22, 2016; and March 31, 2016.

The named plaintiff seeks monetary damages for herself and other similarly situated employees.

Is This A Collective Action?  What Does That Mean?

This case is a potential collective action under federal law.  A collective action case allows one or more people to sue on behalf of themselves and others who have similar claims.  In order to proceed as a group, though, the Court must certify the collective.  Because we are in the early stages of the case, this has not happened yet, but we intend to file the motions at the appropriate times asking the Court to grant this certification.
