Missouri residents may be interested in a recent lawsuit filed against Google that alleges age discrimination.

However, he was rejected for the job because the company considered him too old, according to filing.

Missouri government mulls employment legislation

A bill was introduced in Missouri's House on April 15 that would ban discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in housing, employment and public accommodations. House Bill 407 is similar to a Senate bill that passed out of committee recently, but both bills are seen as a long shot to gain approval. They face potential opposition from the Missouri Family Network and the state's chamber of commerce.

The bill also narrows the definition of and requirements for a whistleblower and limits the ability of whistleblowers to sue for discrimination.
