NEW YORK — A former Belk Inc. division chief thinks that his one-time employer downsized beyond the statutory limit, and he’s filed an age discrimination suit against the firm to make his point.
David Hines, who was president of Belk’s northern division from November 2000 until August 2002, filed suit in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt, Md., this month alleging that his termination at the age of 53 violated the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. The plaintiff, now a resident of Delaware, is seeking $4 million in damages, plus interest and expenses.
