Indiana Age Discrimination Bill Dying?

It will be my guess from reading the following that it will be. I am a bit divided on this in gneral but very much of the opinion that the current law serves no one well. By no, I include particularly businesses.

The House version of the bill would have allowed older workers to file age-discrimination claims with the state civil rights commission and have a chance to win back wages or other penalties.

But business groups opposed the measure.

The Senate committee amended the bill so it no longer would give certain workers a chance to seek state penalties for age discrimination.

A conference committee is expected to seek a compromise between the two versions of the bill.
