Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act Of 2009
Amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to say that the 180-day statute of limitations for filing an equal pay claim starts over with each unequal paycheck. Signed into law by President Barack Obama, this law was passed specifically to overturn a U.S. Supreme Court case that held that the statute of limitations starts on the day the pay was first agreed upon.
