David Morrison Quoted In Law360

January 28, 2019

David Morrison, a principal in the firm's Labor & Employment group, was quoted recently in the Law360 article entitled "4 Takeaways After the 7th Circ. Limits ADEA's Scope". The article discusses how the Seventh Circuit's recent ruling adopting a narrow view of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act is a win for employers, but it also could result in plaintiffs relying more on state law claims. 

Morrison explained that state laws can include tougher requirements than federal laws and that some states could look to pass more restrictive laws in the future. "If a state had a law that you can't have a disparate impact applied to applicants, employers would be forced to follow that even if the federal law didn't apply because there's no real upside to being sued in state court for a class action even if they can't sue in federal court," Morrison said.
