Yesterday, the New York Post reported on a recent age discrimination case brought by one of BLG's clients against Boyden World Capital, his former employer. Our client, Gray Hollett, was the chief marketing officer at Boyden and faced blatant and hostile ageist remarks from Boyden partners and board members before he was fired. As part of the charge we filed we have included a series of hostile e-mail exchanges a managing director sent Mr. Hollett declaring his ideas as "outdated" and asserting that it was "time [for him] to retire". Our client was fired shortly after reporting his concerns over this conduct to Boyden management.
The Boyd Law Group remains dedicated to protecting the personal and economic interests of employees who were unfairly terminated and/or unlawfully discriminated against. Each and every one of us may face some form of age discrimination at some point in our careers and the outpouring of support for Mr. Hollett in response to the New York Post article and on social media shows that these concerns are resonating and are not isolated.
