Passed: 61-36 (see complete tally)
On January 22, 2009, the Senate passed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act (S. 181) by a vote of 61 to 36. The ACLU supported this legislation, which would allow employees who have suffered pay discrimination to seek vindication without facing unduly and unfairly restrictive deadlines. The legislation addresses wage disparities based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, and disability, clarifying that such discrimination is not a one-time occurrence that starts and ends with a pay decision, but that each paycheck represents a continuing violation by an employer.
