Dental Hygienists Fired - Age Discrimination Suit Filed

Hygienists Fired Age Discrimination


Dental Practice Fired Dental Hygienists Because of Age, Federal Agency Charges

Capital City Dental Care, a dental practice headquartered in Harrisburg, Pa., violated federal law when it fired a group of dental hygienists because of their age violation Age Discrimination Laws, Title VII, and the Age Discrimination Employment Act of 1967.

In August 2015, a new owner purchased the dental practice. From September 2015 through November 2015, Capital City Dental Care fired eight out of nine dental hygienists older than 40 at its Camp Hill, Pa. location. Capital City Dental Care did not give the dental hygienists, each of whom had years of experience and were qualified for the position, any prior notice or reason for the termination. From August 2015 through February 2018, Capital City Dental Care them replaced them with 14 employees, 13 of whom were under age 40.

Such alleged conduct violates the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA), which prohibits discrimination against people who are age 40 or older.  Suit has commenced against Capital City.

Termination or Discrimination based on Age is in direct violation of the law and is strictly prohibited.  Any worker who is terminated because of their age should be represented by an experienced trial attorney.
