Tucson JOA Settles Age Discrimination Suit

By: Joe Strupp

Tucson Newspapers Inc., the joint operating agency for the Arizona Daily Star and Tucson Citizen, must pay six former production employees a combined $650,000 to settle an age-discrimination lawsuit.

The settlement, approved March 18 by a Pima County Superior Court judge, also requires the company to train workers in anti-discrimination policies and keep records of all prepress employees fired during the next three years.

The suit, filed May 25, 2001, by the Arizona attorney general’s office, resulted in the largest settlement in the office’s history.
