The five conservative Supreme Court justices have gone all "activist" in undermining the clear intent of another discrimination law. The previous example was in 2007 with gender discrimination -- a ruling that was remedied by the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. This time, in a recent decision, it is with age discrimination.
Employment lawyer Ellen Simon describes what these justices have done in this post at Today's Workplace. Their argument is rather legalistic, but the intent of the decision is clear -- to make it harder to bring those who discriminate to justice. Hopefully Congress will remedy this bad decision soon.
