A new Indiana law which will take effect on
July 1 prohibits businesses from requiring device implants as a condition of
employment or of receiving additional compensation or benefits.
The law defines “device” as any “acoustic,
optical, mechanical, electronic, medical, or molecular device.”
--The mandated implantation of any such device
in an employee’s or candidate’s body.
--The mandated injection of any such device.
--The mandated ingestion, inhalation, or other
incorporation of such a device by an employee or candidate.
Employers may not discriminate against any
employee who refuses the implantation of a device with respect to
compensation and benefits or terms and conditions of employment.
Employees or prospective employees may bring a
civil action against an employer to enforce the law, and employers found in
violation of the law are liable for actual damages and court costs and
