TEPRO is Being Sued by the EEOC for Age Discrimination

The auto parts maker allegedly demoted and then fired many employees because of their age. Based on the alleged discrimination the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a civil complaint against TERPO in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee, Winchester Division on November 15, 2012.

The civil complaint alleges that TEPRO, operating a facility in Winchester, Tennessee, targeted and terminated employees based on their age, while retaining younger employees. The civil complaint goes on to allege that TEPRO, told older employees to accept demotions or lose their jobs, and then eliminated those jobs anyway.
