Ledbetter Act corrects Supreme Court’s Error

In Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire and Rubber, the United States Supreme Court tightened the time limits for filing suits based on job discrimination in terms of pay. One of the first pieces of legislation passed by Congress during President Obama’s first administration was the so-called Lilly Ledbetter Act, which was to address the issue of time constraints but there are still limitation periods to consider for this type of case and others. Accordingly, it is imperative that anyone who believes they are the victim of discrimination or harassment or other impermissible employer conduct contact the EEOC or an attorney for a consultation as soon as they suspect a problem.
