Kristen Jones, a principal in the firm's Labor & Employment and Litigation groups, authored an article recently published by Bloomberg Law entitled "Capping Years of Experience in Job Posting - Employers Beware".

The article discusses the recent Seventh Circuit en banc ruling that vacated a 2018 Seventh Circuit panel decision and instead affirmed the district court's ruling that job applicants cannot pursue age discrimination claims under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) on the basis that caps on years of experience in job postings disparately impact them because of their age.  Jones touches on what the practical implications are for employers regarding the ruling and what employers in Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin should take into account.
