What is the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act?

Comments Off

On Thursday, January 22nd, the U.S. Senate passed S. 181, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Swift action is expected in the House to pass the bill and present it to President Obama, who is expected to sign it into law. The effect of the new law will be to restore the ‘paycheck accrual rule,’ making every instance of pay discrimination, every paycheck, actionable discrimination.
