House Passes Bill Authorizing Un-Capped Punitive Damages For Pay Discrimination

Workforce.com is reporting that the U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill last week that would authorize "unlimited" punitive damages for women who are victims of pay discrimination. According to the story, punitive damages awarded under this law would not be subject to the $300,000 cap of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. The White House is threatening to veto the proposal if it makes it out of the Senate.
