Still, it's not every day that Congress reacts to a court ruling involving employment law.
In an article I read over the weekend, 7 Congresswomen (House) said in a statement that the Supreme Court "effectively rolled back efforts to ensure equal pay" and that the ruling "completely ignores the reality of the workplace and is based on the illogical conclusion that a victim of pay disparity will be able to document--despite the typical office secrecy over income--a discriminatory difference in teh salaries within six months."
I know that the Paycheck Fairness Act wouldn't be welcomed as good news for employers on the one hand, but on the other hand, there was another threaded discussion on the topic of equal pay in this HR Forum (see "Gender Pay Gap Still Exists"), and everyone there seemed to be in agreement that it's long overdue, that HR should take the lead to rectify it, etc.
Looks like we won't have to worry about what the Supreme Court meant too much longer . . . saw this on the Internet:
