The Supreme Court on Tuesday made it significantly easier for employers to defend against Title VII workplace discrimination claims that are based on long-ago decisions about salary and raises. By a 5-4 vote, the Court said that employees claiming they received disparate treatment based on gender or race must do so within 180 days of the original discriminatory action -- not within 180 days of their last paycheck. Business groups applauded the ruling in Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.
