ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act signed by U.S. President Barack Obama. The law was enacted in response to the Supreme Court's 2007 ruling in Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. The law restores the pre-Ledbetter position of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) that each paycheck that delivers discriminatory compensation is a wrong actionable under the federal equal employment opportunity statutes, regardless of when the discrimination began.
