Best Buy settles age discrimination case

GILROY, CA

The commission filed a suit after Reinhold Schouweiler applied online for a customer service position at the electronics retail store in 2004 but other applicants less qualified and substantially younger were hired, according to the commission.

Best Buy officials agreed to pay Reinhold for his lost earnings on Wednesday and assured that the store in Gilroy would develop and provide training on discrimination and retaliation.

Best Buy officials were unavailable for comment.
