In July 2013, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or EEOC, sued PJP Health for violations of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, which bars discrimination against those ages 40 and older and prohibits retaliation against employees for reporting violations, notes the EEOC. The charges were that the company refused to promote an employee based on her age, terminated two employees based on age, and terminated an employee within three days of a meeting about her complaint. As part of the settlement, the company also agreed to conduct training to prevent future violations.

The EEOC brought charges against the Los Angeles office of Enterprise Rent-A-Car based on allegations that its Burbank office did not offer jobs in management training to people over the age of 40, states the EEOC. The EEOC found that no applicant over the age of 40 was hired into the program at the Burbank office in a three-year period. As part of the settlement, the Los Angeles Metro Region of Enterprise Rent-A-Car agreed to redistribute its anti-discrimination policy and provide staff training.
