May 7, 2012 - PRLog -- Lilly Ledbetter, the woman who famously sued her employer for pay discrimination and who inspired the first piece of legislation President Obama signed into law, and Director of the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs Patricia Shiu will be appearing as guests on upcoming episodes of The Proactive Employer radio program on the VoiceAmerica Business Channel.

Ms. Ledbetter will join Stephanie R. Thomas, Ph.D., host of The Proactive Employer, on Thursday, May 10 at 12 Noon Pacific to discuss her experiences with compensation discrimination, her new book, Grace and Grit: My Fight For Equal Pay and Fairness At Goodyear And Beyond, her landmark lawsuit, and the Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act of 2009 she inspired. We'll also be discussing some proposed regulations aimed at eliminating compensation discrimination, and what Ms. Ledbetter sees as the critical steps needed to eliminate compensation discrimination and address the gender pay gap.

On Thursday, May 17, OFCCP Director Patricia Shiu will join The Proactive Employer to discuss the Department of Labor's strategic goal of "Good Jobs for Everyone" and how her Agency is working toward that goal. We'll talk about OFCCP's proposed regulatory changes with respect to compensation, sex discrimination, employment of veterans and individuals with disabilities, and discuss OFCCP's new investigation methodology - reliance on "broad Title VII principles."

The ProactiveEmployer airs live on Thursdays at 12 Noon Pacific / 2 PM Central / 3PM Eastern on the VoiceAmerica Business channel. Archived shows are available through the VoiceAmerica website, iTunes, and The Proactive Employer website, .
