Nassau sued on retiring cops' pay cap

[gview file=””]
Instead of saving millions, Nassau County’s recent cap on termination pay for retiring police officers could prove costly under a federal class-action lawsuit filed recently that claims the new limit amounts to age discrimination.
“Despite the appearance of neutrality, this policy and practice has a disparate impact on employees age 40 and is in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the Employee Retirement Security Act of 1947,” said Garden City lawyer James Vagnini in U.S. District Court in Central Islip.
