The Wall Street Journal Law Blog reports here that as the economy falls, age discrimination claims go up.  Jottings By An Employer’s Lawyer has a short post on the topic here.  The EEOC issued a press release about the record number of EEOC charges in 2008.  2009 should be a banner year at the EEOC.  More tidbits after the break.

The Pennsylvania Employment Law Blog has a post here on how a recent Executive Order promotes the use of union contractors on projects funded by the stimulus package.
