NWLC Asking For Support re: Fair Pay Restoration Act

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

As you probably know, yesterday the Senate HELP Committee held a hearing on the Fair Pay Restoration Act (S. 1843), which would reverse the recent Supreme Court decision in Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. that severely limits workers’ ability to vindicate their rights and distorts Congress’ intent to eliminate sex and other forms of discrimination in the workplace.The National Women’s Law Center is circulating a sign-on letter for the legal community to show their support for the Fair Pay Restoration Act. Our goal is to get 1,000 lawyers and law students to sign on to the letter before the bill goes to debate on the Senate floor. Lawyers and law students can sign on here.

More information about the bill is available on our website and on our blog. We also offer an opportunity for non-lawyers to support the bill by signing the Fair Pay Campaign Pledge.

Thanks very much,
Robin Reed
