It takes time and perseverence to do big things.
It will not do to be faint-hearted. One meets with failure occasionally, but one has yet to go on. Success does not come suddenly or without
setbacks. -- Nehru

Obama signs new Equal Pay Act amendment

Good news for women and minorities! Obama signed into law changes to the Equal Pay act, which is part of the Civil Rights Act. Now employees will have more time to file charges of discrimination for disparate pay.

Amendments to the American's with Disabilities Act

There are some changes to the ADA, the Americans with Disabilities Act that are really beneficial for American workers. The changes include more flexible definitions of who is considered "disabled" under the statute and prevents mitigating factors (such as medications to control asthma) from destroying the disability status. I believe this change will enable more potential Plaintiffs to survive summary judgment in court, as the current survival rate on those claims is a mere 3%.
