Hazen Paper Co. v. Biggins | 507 U.S. 604 (1993)

The federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act forbids employment discrimination against employees who’re forty years old or older. And in Hazen Paper Company versus Biggins, the Supreme Court considered whether an adverse employment action based on an employee’s pension status violated the act as well.

Hazen hired Walter Biggins as its technical director in nineteen seventy-seven. Hazen fired Biggens in nineteen eighty-six, when Biggins was sixty-two years old and a few weeks short of having worked ten years for Hazen. Had he reached his ten-year anniversary, his pension rights would’ve vested.

Biggins sued Hazen for violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, which we’ll call the act. A federal district court jury found for Biggins, finding that Hazen violated the act. The First Circuit affirmed, and the United States Supreme Court granted Hazen’s cert petition.
