We’re just a few months away from the Presidential election. That means that the debates are right around the corner.
Back in 2008, around this time, employment-law blogger Daniel Schwartz at the Connecticut Employment Law Blog rounded up some other bloggers to pose hypothetical debate questions to the ’08 candidates for President and Vice President.
Four years later, Dan has resurrected this successful series and asked yours truly to join in. Today, the question goes to President Obama:
Protection of women’s rights in the workplace seems to have been a priority for you since taking office. In 2009, you signed the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which effects the statute of limitations for filing an equal-pay lawsuit, into law. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, signed into law in 2010, includes workplace breastfeeding protections.
Should you win reelection, what further changes would you make to workplace laws?
