ABSTRACT
The article reports on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit ruling that an employer did not violate the Age Discrimination in Employment Act when it promoted a younger employee over an older one with more education and work experience. In the case Provenzano v. LCI Holdings Inc., a Liz Claiborne store promoted a younger candidate on the basis of her positive attitude and store results. The plaintiff could not prove that she was a superior candidate.
