"For quite a long time most of the American public has supported the idea of nondiscrimination against gays and lesbians in employment," says Herek.
So-called nondiscrimination rules prohibit a company from letting " highly compensated " workers contribute a substantially greater percentage of their salaries than other employees do.
McCurry agrees with the notion of nondiscrimination, as the FCC described it in a statement adopted in 2005: Consumers are entitled to "access the lawful Internet content of their choice"; "run applications and services of their choice"; and "connect their choice of legal devices that do not harm the network."

Federal "nondiscrimination" rules limit how much some higher-paid workers can put away pretax.
For 2010, employees can generally contribute a maximum of $16,500 to these plans, although some companies restrict better paid workers to a lower contribution limit so their 401 (k) plans can meet federal "nondiscrimination" tests.
And that money comes with strings -- such as nondiscrimination provisions.
