MAPLEWOOD, Minn. — Multinational conglomerate 3M Co. has agreed to pay $3 million to settle an age discrimination lawsuit filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Star Tribune reported.

According to EEOC, 3M unlawfully laid off hundreds of employees over the age of 45 from 2003 to 2006 in an effort to save money.

Pending judicial approval, the settlement will be paid to approximately 290 former employees, and 3M will post openings for positions it had not advertised previously to enable older employees to apply.
