Lilly Ledbetter

To all of the attornies who inhabit this humble website, care to comment on the impact of the passage of the Lilly Ledbetter legislation yesterday? Those who lobbied hard against the act felt that it would simply result in a flood of litigation benefitting trial lawyers and encumbering small business. Despite the significant efforts by, among others, the IFA, to derail this legislation, President Obama made it the first bill he signed into law.

Thanks in advance for imparting your wisdom on this topic.....

And one more thing...

Are any small business owners going to make any changes to their employment practices or handbooks as a result of this new law?

Thanks for the informative links. The fallout from the passage of this legislation will be very interesting to monitor in the coming months/years.

Ledbetter Protection

Be good if we had a conversation about how franchisees can protect themselves from a Ledbetter attack.

Lilly Ledbetter

This is a law that would eliminate gender based compensation in the workplace. Senator John McCain said that if women want better-paying jobs, they just need more "education and training." Then, he didn't even show up for the vote.
