ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in the case Ledbetter versus Goodyear which provides integral protection to employers against stale discrimination claims based on events long past. The Court ruled that the deadline for filing pay discrimination claims and other discrimination complaints is measured from the date of the allegedly discriminatory decision. The employee failed to demonstrate that the employer had made such decision within the charge-filing period. It cites the implications of the ruling.
