Turns out that many of those laws are so vague that they probably wouldn't settle the issue.Why it matters: None of this would be an issue unless a state got a waiver to allow insurers to charge higher premiums to people with pre-existing conditions.Many employees complain that their employer gives some workers preferential treatment or does not treat all employees equally.The law does not require that all employees be treated equally, not only that they may not be treated differently because of their sex, race, religion, national origin, physical or mental handicap or age.When facing a layoff, an employer may not select "older" employees for layoff simply because they may be able to collect a pension.
