Doctor wins 340K in age discrimination case
DES MOINES (AP) — A doctor fired from his job at Woodward Resource Center after eight days on the job has been awarded $340,000 by a Polk County jury in an age-discrimination case.
Dr. Zane Hurkin, 81, of Clive, filed a lawsuit in 2010 after his dismissal from the center for the mentally disabled.
His attorney, Jill Zwagerman, said Thursday he was asked age-related questions during his job interview and wasn’t provided adequate training when he was hired. She also says Hurkin was paid thousands of dollars less than his posted pay grade.
