INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (21Alive) -- A federal appeals court handed down a ruling today that says Indiana's "Right To Work" law is constitutional.

According to RTV6, the three-judge panel made the ruling Tuesday morning, keeping the Right To Work law in tact for the time being.

However, there are still challenges in the future as in just two days as the Indiana Supreme Court will be hearing a case from Lake County, where two judges ruled the law unconstitutional.

Right To Work is a law that was passed in 2012 that prohibits businesses from forcing employees to pay union fees.
