To: Sara Presler-Hoefle & Jacque Hatch From: Ryann Trejo Date: March 3, 2008 Subject: Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company In the case Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, Ledbetter filed charges against the company for discrimination on her gender. Ledbetter was a woman working for a company dominated by men. She felt that she was getting ripped off by the company for doing the same amount of work as the men and getting paid substantially less. During the time period she worked for the company, salaried workers were denied raises based on performance, so this shows that it was not just her. During the trial, the court ordered the company for backpay, and for damages. In 1998, Ledbetter went into an early retirement, and thus she filed the charges against the company saying she was discriminated against, but what she did not realize was that there is a 180 day period in which she can file a claim (gender discrimination/ pay) on that company.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
