MBJ Attorneys Argue Ledbetter Fair Pay Act In One of First Cases to Address New Law

Morgan, Brown & Joy attorneys Robert P. Joy and Jeffrey S. Siegel argued one of the first cases in the country to address the limits of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.

In Gilmore v. Macy’s Retail Holdings, Inc.,  the Court addressed whether an allegedly discriminatory bonus plan fell within the contours of the Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.  The Court concluded that Ledbetter did apply, but limited potential claims of emotional distress and back pay.  The Court’s opinion was issued on February 4, 2009.

Morgan, Brown & Joy has been recognized for its role in the analysis of the new law.  In particular, Jeff was interviewed for an article in the New Jersey Law Journal (registration required).
