- Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act
On January 29, President Obama signed into law the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Key provisions of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act include:
Changes application of statute of limitations - The Ledbetter Act will make the issuance of a paycheck a discriminatory action. By making the time clock re-start each time an employee receives a paycheck, and potentially even when a retiree receives an annuity check, the Ledbetter Act will allow individuals to bring discrimination claims potentially many years after an alleged act of discrimination occurred. Employers will be liable for earlier management decisions for which there may be no records.
Expands plaintiff field - The Ledbetter Act will allow, not just an employee who was discriminated against, but, other individuals who were "affected" by an act of pay discrimination to file claims. Thus, the new law may allow family members, including spouses and children, and potentially others to become plaintiffs in discrimination suits over an employee's pay.
Amends other civil rights statutes - The Ledbetter Act will extend the statute of limitations for filing claims for all protected classes of employment law, including gender, age, color, disability, race, religion and national origin.
