House Democrats Consider Passing Bill to Overturn Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire

House Democrats are seriously considering legislation to overturn the recent Supreme Court decision in Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & RubberForbes reports:
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., and House Education and Labor Chairman George Miller, D-Calif., said House Democrats would pass legislation to ensure what happened to Ledbetter wouldn't happen to anyone else.
"A key provision of the legislation will make it clear that discrimination occurs not just when the decision to discriminate is made, but also when someone becomes subject to that discriminatory decision, and when they are affected by that discriminatory decision, including each time they are issued a discriminatory paycheck," Miller said.
We will continually update the progress of such a bill once/if it is introduced.
