On February 27, 2014, a bill (S1440) was introduced in the Senate that would prohibit employers from basing employment decisions on an applicant’s unemployed status. The bill would supplement an existing law that prohibits employers from publishing job advertisements that limit applicants to individuals already employed. Notably, the bill permits employers to ask about the circumstances surrounding an applicant’s termination of prior employment, as well as questions substantially related to qualifications and experience.
