Ledbetter Bill Passes House

Congress is trying to undo the impact of Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., the recent Supreme Court case limiting the right to sue to discriminatory acts within 180 days, regardless of when the plaintiff discovered the discrimination, the effects of which linger on in lower paychecks month after month (earlier post). Ledbetter Bill Passes House, Leadership Conference on Civil Rights press release, July 31.

The House bill is the Lill Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2007, H.R. 2831. The Senate bill is the Fair Pay Restoration Act, S. 1843.
