Golden Gate University Law Review


Kara M. Farina


This Comment contends that the Court's holding in Ledbetter marks a substantial deviation from the purpose of Title VII - to rectify past and prevent future workplace discrimination and provide a remedy for economically injured employees-and thereby weakens the prohibition against discrimination in the workplace. The Court's failure to consider the hidden nature of discriminatory pay claims significantly limits employees' ability to challenge disparate pay under Title VII. This comment asserts that discrimination "occurs" with each paycheck that delivers discriminatorily low pay.
