American Jobs Act

Interesting to see in the “American Jobs Act” that an interviewing individual may actually SUE a potential employer for not hiring them based on a discrimination clause in the legislation. The turned-down individual has legal grounds to sue for discrimination based on the fact they are unemployed, and have been discriminated against because of their “condition” of being unemployed.

What employer in their right mind, should this legislation actually pass, would attempt to hire someone and run the risk of litigation? Again, the Obama administration is playing into the hands of one of his largest contributors – TRIAL LAWYERS!
