Proposed PA Legislation Would Make Online-Only Job Applications Unlawful

The Pennsylvania Human Relations Act (PHRA) is Pennsylvania's employment discrimination statute. A new House Bill, HB 579, would amend the PHRA to define unlawful discriminatory practices to include employers that:
Print, publish or advertise in any way a job opportunity in this Commonwealth that exclusively utilizes an Internet-based application for employment.
It's not clear whether it has any chance of passing.
