Time Slipping Away On Pay Bias Filings

Professor Bill Gould is quoted in Investor's Business Daily about a pay bias ruling that set a 180-day limit for filing suit in wage disputes:

Bill Gould, ex-chairman of the National Labor Relations Board and a Stanford University professor, says the court ignored precedent and dealt a blow to workers.

"I think it's a horrendous ruling," he said. "It failed to take in account employee relations in the workplace."

Gould says it can take more than just six months for an employee to discover pay inequities.


Gould says Republicans are less likely to move against the ruling, and a reversal would face trouble in the Senate, where members can filibuster.
