In an age discrimination claim filed by a former school principal against a local private school, Courtney Mayo successfully argued that the claimant was not terminated from his position as the result of any discrimination, but rather his contract was not renewed as a result of his continued poor job performance. The 69-year old claimant argued that the defendant school discriminated against him when it attempted to “force” him to retire and replaced him with a younger principal. The EEOC ruled in favor of the respondent and found there was no probable cause for any age discrimination case. Following this decision, the claimant elected not to appeal or pursue this matter in civil court.
