Equal Pay Act pass out of House!

i Apr 29th Comments Off by

HB950 by Rep. Senfronia Thompson, also know as the Lilly Ledbetter Equal Pay Act, was passed by the Texas House and is headed to the Senate. The bill says the timeline (statute of limitations) for suing an employer for discrimination restarts each time a discriminatory paycheck is received. It brings Texas law into alignment with the federal law of the same name that was signed into law by President Obama.
