Glad to see my friend Mark Landa blogging over on the Iowa Law Blog.  Mark has an important reminder that the time for filing a civil rights complaint under Iowa law will be extended from 180 days to 300 days in order to conform to the federal timeline.

Iowa employment lawyer Victoria Herring points out on her blog that it is not a good idea to push deadlines but the extended time frame will allow complainants (and employers) and additional time to work out a resolution or gather evidence for claims.

The new Iowa law goes into effect July 1, 2008.
