GREENVILLE, S.C. – A 47-year-old sales leader with experience in the textile industry was unlawfully fired by Indian Land, S.C., textile manufacturer Keer America Corporation because of his age, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charged in a lawsuit filed today.According to the EEOC’s suit, Keer America fired Scott Gamble during his second week of employment. The EEOC said that Gamble was offered a job by the company’s human resources generalist on April 18, 2015, and began working for the company on April 27. The EEOC charged that the plant manager ordered the human resources generalist to rescind Gamble’s job offer prior to his starting work after the plant manager saw Gamble’s driver’s license and learned of his age. The human resources generalist refused to rescind Gamble’s job offer. On May 8, the plant manager fired Gamble.
