Former WHUR Employee Appealing Case for Age Discrimination Suit

gavelHeritage Howard University station WHUR is being by former employee Fred Outten for age discrimination. Outten lost the case and has recently appealed his where he states he was let go of because of, what the station states were, budget constraints, but he sites the station paid more to younger employees after he was terminated. His suit claims there is over $150 Million unaccounted for at WHUR 96.3 FM and on Howard University’s IRS 990 Tax Forms. He goes on to say…

I am a native Washingtonian and Howard University (HU) alumnus with honors who served his country in the U.S. Army during the . As an older Howard University alumnus (class of 1999), a member of the HU Alumni Association, and military Army Veteran who has spent nearly 15 years on the campus of Howard University studying and working at both WHUT-TV and the WHUR Radio Station I feel totally betrayed by the leadership of my beloved University. I worked as a wage employee at a mere $15/hour for WHUR General Manager Millard James “Jim” Watkins for more than ten years, both at Howard University’s WHUT TV station where Mr. Watkins was Interim GM, and at WHUR Radio Station where he is the current General Manager. For more than ten years, Howard University and GM Jim Watkins kept me on wage (in violation of Howard University’s personnel policy), denied me promotions, paid vacations, sick leave, annual leave, and paid holidays. On January 23, 2010, I filed an Age lawsuit against Howard University/WHUR 96.3 FM Radio Station, in the DC Superior Court under the District of Columbia Human Rights Act (DCHRA). Outten lost the case and filed on appeal in March of 2013.
