Banks works to benefit vets yet again

March 11, 2014

Sen. Jim Banks

For the second time in two weeks, Indiana lawmakers are looking at employment discrimination issues.

Sen. Jim Banks has authored several bills in the past to support veterans, and now, he is offering his support of legislation to protect employment rights.

A new bill, which has seen versions passed by the Indiana House of Representatives and Senate, is waiting a decision from a conference committee.

House Bill 1242 would make it illegal for employers to discriminate against applicants because of their status as a military veteran or a member of the reserves of National Guard.

Specifically, the bill would prevent an employer from refusing to hire someone because of such status.
