The Washington DC Employment Law Update is reporting that the Senate is set to start debate on the Paycheck Fairness Act, perhaps as early as this week. Employers, this news is huge. The Paycheck Fairness Act has the potential to revolutionize (and not in a good way) companies' payroll practices. For more on why you should be very concerned about this legislation, please take a few moments and read my summary from a few months ago -- What is the Paycheck Fairness Act and why should employers be concerned? Then, take a few more moments and call or email your Senator to express your opinion that this legislation should not pass:
- Senator Sherrod Brown: 888-896-6446, or brown.senate.gov/contact
- Senator George Voinovich: 202-224-3553, or voinovich.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Contact.ContactForm
