Telemundo and NBC Facing Age Discrimination Claims
by Ramon E. Rivera on August 14, 2012
Telemundo and NBC Universal are facing an age discrimination lawsuit filed by a former reporter/anchor who claims she was terminated upon turning 50 and replaced by a much younger woman. Vicky Gutierrez, who worked for KVEA in Los Angeles from 2003 until March, further alleges that her termination may have been in retaliation to her complaints of workplace harassment.
“Defendants claim to have ‘laid off’ Ms. Gutierrez, age 50, but they actually terminated her, without cause and in breach of the employment contract between the parties, and promptly replaced her with a substantially younger woman to ‘look’ younger and ‘better’ to attract better ratings and at a lower cost to the employer,” the complaint states.
