(KCPW News) President Barack Obama signed his first bill into law yesterday. The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act greatly extends the time period in which employees are allowed to sue their employer's for discriminatory pay, allowing them 180 days after receiving any discriminatory paycheck to file a lawsuit. The White House champions the bill as a victory for equal pay for equal work, while congressional Republicans denounce it as simply a vehicle for frivolous lawsuits. Well, now it's the law, and a Salt Lake City attorney is excited about it, because it may substantially change the case of one of his clients, an inspector for the Transportation Security Administration who filed a federal complaint for harassment, retaliation and pay discrimination. Attorney Lawrence Buhler was in the studio to talk about the case and why he believes the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act is a good thing.
