Fair Pay for the 21st Century

The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 reverses a Supreme Court decision that found that people subject to pay discrimination have only 180 days to file a discrimination claim from the date the employer first decides to pay them less. It reinstates the long-standing interpretation of the law that treats each paycheck as a separate discriminatory act that starts a new clock. It is the first bill signed into law by President Barack Obama.
