SAN FRANCISCO – A woman alleges she was terminated because of her age by a global security and aerospace company.
Becky Nguyen filed a complaint on July 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Lockheed Martin Corp. and Does 1-10 alleging disability and age discrimination.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2015, she was laid off by the defendant over claims that it was due to funding constraints, but she found out that she was replaced by a much younger employee. The plaintiff holds Lockheed Martin Corp. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly terminated plaintiff's employment based on her age, 56.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages, punitive and penalty damages, statutory penalties, all legal fees, interest, liquidated damages, and any other relief as the court deems just. She is represented by Richard A. Hoyer and Jennifer E. McGuire of Hoyer & Hicks in San Francisco.
