Oregon last month followed New Jersey’s lead in establishing a law that makes it illegal for employers to refuse to hire applicants because they’re unemployed. The Oregon measure bans employers from publishing job ads that discourage unemployed people from applying.

At least a dozen other states are considering, or have considered, similar bills during their 2012 sessions, including California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.
