  • On January 29, 2009, President Obama signed the Ledbetter Fair Pay Act (the "Act") into law. Notably, this was the first piece of legislation signed by the new President. Although the Act's supporters claim it is specifically targeted to provide a remedy for discriminatory pay practices, consequences for America's employers will likely be more extensive.
