Equal Pay Advocate Lilly Ledbetter to Speak in Ann Arbor

Equal Pay Advocate and namesake of the 2008 Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act will be speaking at the University of Michigan at 7PM on October 2, 2013 in Rackham Auditorium. After a jury found that Ledbetter had been illegally discriminated against by the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, a legal quirk in Title VII effectively limited her relief. Ms. Ledbetter will recount her legal battle, and the 2007 Supreme Court decision that led to the 2008 Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act - the first law signed into effect by President Obama. The lecture is free and open to the public, with seating beginning at 6:30PM. A question and answer session as well as book signing will occur immediately after the lecture. The annual Vivian R. Shaw Lecture is presented by the Institute for Research on Women and Gender and the Department of Women's Studies. Cosponsors include the Ford School of Public Policy, Communication Studies, School of Social Work, Law School, Political Science, American Culture, and the Center for the Education of Women.

EEOC Settles First GINA based Employment Lawsuit

The ability to access genetic information for indicators of potential disease has been a growing source of concern for many employees, who may fear potential retaliation or loss of employment on that basis. New technology makes it ever more likely that genetic information is available - sometimes for the wrong reason.

Studies aim to develop ways of spotting age discrimination

In recent years, as the economy has moved slowly toward recovery, many older workers have found it difficult to find new work or to move up in their current jobs. Indeed, it is easy to find anecdotes about workplace age discrimination, but it is much more difficult to prove definitively that it is occurring. Researchers, however, are currently working to develop a test that would prove when age bias and discrimination is occurring in the workplace.
