One day Find LedbetterLilly Ledbetter received an anonymous letter in the mail. She was the only woman working as an area manager. Thus began years of legal battles that climbed up to the Supreme Court. Ledbetter ultimately lost the lawsuit against Goodyear.
The act makes it easier for victims of pay discrimination to present a case, whereas the statute of limitation ly favored corporations. Ledbetter was reimbursed for her lost wages, overtime and retirement pay because of the law being put in place. She had advice for women looking to stand up for themselves and receive equal pay. After finding out the pay scale at a company, new employees should negotiate for a fair salary that is representative of peer pay.
Unfortunately, sometimes standing up for equal pay comes with repercussions, be it personal or professional. I should have rode it out I should have stayed. So you really find out who your true friends are.
Despite some setbacks, Ledbetter had many advocates, including a very important one: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She is very picky about the law. I wish we had more people in decision making that would do that. So much has changed today. IE 11 is not supported. For an optimal experience visit our site on another browser.
