Tenth Circuit: Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act Tolls the Statute of Limitations on Claims for Discriminatory Compensation

In Almond v. Unified School District #501, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which was enacted in 2009, does not extend the statute of limitations on all discrimination claims every time a person receives a paycheck.  Rather, the Tenth Circuit concluded it applies to extend the statute of limitations only when the claim is for discrimination in compensation.  In other words, the Act does not apply to all discriminatory decisions that result in lower pay rate, it only applies when a person claims that he or she is being discriminated against in receiving lower compensation than other similarly situated workers for the same work.
