AmerisourceBergen Corporation (ABC) Accused of Age Discrimination


10/2/2012 8:16:25 AM

The Philadelphia Office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has filed an age discrimination complaint against drug distributor AmerisourceBergen Corp., the Philadelphia Business Journal reports.

The complaint alleges AmerisourceBergen (NYSE:ABC) of Valley Forge, Pa., did not hire Robert Aellis, 60, for a vacant telecommunications manager position because of his age, and that the position went to someone 20 years younger.

AmerisourceBergen issued a statement saying "we are disappointed that the EEOC has filed a complaint on behalf of an individual who was one of a large number of applicants... AmerisourceBergen is committed to equal employment opportunity, and we actively cultivate a diverse and inclusive environment for our current and potential employees.”
