EEOC goes to bat for superannuated lifeguards

Nassau County, N.Y., had let go 71-year-old veteran lifeguard Jay Lieberfarb after he failed a swim test. Charging that the county had not always dismissed younger guards who had failed the same test, the EEOC proceeded to negotiate a $65,000 back pay settlement, a three-year consent decree and other relief.

I am old enough to remember going to swim at public venues where there were prominent signs stating “WARNING No Lifeguard, swim at your own risk”. Now, in fewer years than I care to admit, I’ll be able to retire back to those same venues where there will be prominent signs stating “WARNING Old Lifeguard, swim at your own risk”.
