Google Sued by Job Candidate for Age Discrimination?

“A 64-year-old Florida tech worker filed an age-discrimination lawsuit against Google GOOGL +3.43% on Wednesday, claiming the company passed on him after a job interview because of his age.

Robert Heath says in his complaint filed in U.S. District Court in San Jose, Calif., that Google unfairly dismissed his application for a software engineering job in 2011 when he was 60 years old, despite his work experience at IBM IBM -0.32%, Compaq, and General Dynamics GD +0.84%. The lawsuit says Google based its decision not to hire Heath on a brief phone interview, despite telling him in an email that the company was “embarking on its largest recruiting / hiring campaign in its history,” and “you would be a great candidate to come work at Google.””
