ABSTRACT
The article reports on the approval of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2007 by the U.S. Congress, which reversed the decision of the Supreme Court in the case Ledbetter versus Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. The decision tightened the statute of limitations employees have to sue employers for pay discrimination. The act extends discrimination on the basis of age, race, gender and disability. Labor and employment attorney Debra Friedman cited that the employment community is against the act.
