AlliedSignal has agreed to pay $8 million to a group of employees 40 and older who lost their jobs as part of a restructuring in 1993 and 1994 at the company's facilities in Phoenix and Tempe. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed the class-action suit last year after 48 of the 351 older-than-40 workers had filed discrimination complaints. AlliedSignal admitted no wrongdoing. But it has rehired 165 of the workers and agreed to give the others access to the company's job postings. Under the consent degree, AlliedSignal also will make available to the EEOC -- through 2001 -- records concerning future layoffs, retirements, and terminations at those two plants.
