EEOC v. Baltimore County (P)

Back pay is mandatory upon a finding of liability under the Age Discrimination, and the district court erred in declining to award it. SCOTUS decisions addressing back pay in Title VII claims don’t govern back pay under the ADEA. This conclusion is not altered by the EEOC’s concededly unreasonable delay in its investigation, which caused Baltimore County to incur substantial additional back pay liability. Vacated and remanded.

EEOC v. Baltimore County (P), No. 16-2216, Sept. 19, 2018. 4th Cir. (per curiam) from DMD at Baltimore (Bennett).
