ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A federal agency is suing the New Mexico Department of Corrections over treatment of older employees.

The Equal Employment Opportunities Commission says the Corrections Department discriminated against workers over age 40 in various ways regarding such matters as promotions, job assignments and conditions of employment.

The federal agency also alleges that the department retaliated against individuals who filed internal complaints or involved the EEOC.

The EEOC said it filed the lawsuit Friday in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque.

Department spokeswoman Alex Tomlin had no immediate comment on the suit. She said department officials had not seen it.
