Iowa to Pay $448K to Settle Doctor's Age Bias Case

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Iowa taxpayers will pay $448,000 to settle an age discrimination lawsuit filed by an 81-year-old doctor fired after working just eight days at a state home for the disabled.

Dr. Zane Hurkin, of Clive, filed a lawsuit in Polk County District Court in 2010 after he was fired from the Woodward Resource Center.

He claims he was asked age-related questions during the job interview, wasn't adequately trained, and was paid thousands of dollars less than the job's posted pay.

A jury in June awarded him more than $480,000 in lost wages, damages, and attorney fees. The state considered appealing but finalized a settlement agreement with Hurkin on Monday. The money comes from the state's general fund.

Hurkin voluntarily surrendered his medical license in July 2011 after developing health issues.
