Compensation Litigation Revived

October 22, 2009 - NYC

Under The Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 (retroactive to May 27, 2007), the statute of limitations on pay discrimination claims restarts every time an employee is paid or receives benefits or other compensation. How are the courts interpreting the new statute? Can we expect a significant increase in compensation discrimination lawsuits? What do attorneys representing employees and employers need to know about record retention policies and resolving claims made internally? How do employers ensure their pay practices are nondiscriminatory? What does research tell us about the nature of the gender gap? What are the trends? How is pay discrimination measured and defined by economists?

Join us for an in-depth discussion with:

Francine D. Blau, Frances Perkins Professor, Cornell ILR, economist and expert on the gender gap and wage inequity

Louis DiLorenzo, Partner and Chair of Bond Schoeneck & King’s Labor, Employment, Employee Benefits, Executive Compensation, and Immigration Group, representing employers

Elizabeth Grossman, Regional Attorney, NY District Office, EEOC, who has extensive experience in discrimination litigation
