Des Moines Register Discusses Continuing Impact Of U.S. Supreme Court’s 2009 Age Discrimination Decision

Today the Des Moines Register had an interesting article on a 2009 U.S. Supreme Court decision involving an age discrimination claim brought by an Iowan.  That case made it more difficult to sue for age discrimination in employment.  The news article describes what’s happened since that decision both for the people involved and for other workers considering age discrimination claims.  It also discusses ongoing efforts by Iowa Senators Tom Harking and Charles Grassley to return age discrimination law to its former, more lenient state.  It’s a rare opportunity to see what happens after a high profile appellate decision:
