The Equal Pay Act (EPA) mandates that employees who do equal work must be paid equal wages. This law was originally enacted to ensure that women in the workforce get paid as much as their male peers; however, the EPA can refer to any kind of discrimination such as racial, gender, and religious discrimination. Wages are not the only things that need to be equal. Retirement benefits, sick leave, and health benefits also need to be made equal for equal work.
There are, however, exceptions. Bona fide seniority or additional qualifications (such as additional degrees or certificates) can enable employers to pay the more senior or more qualified worker more than a less senior or less qualified worker.
An employment discrimination lawyer at the Law Offices of Gregory Krasovsky provide representation to both private sector employees and public sector employees. Discrimination in either case is equally anathema to us and equally illegal in the eyes of the law.
If you believe that you are being compensated less for equal work then you have the right to take legal action. Contact an employment lawyer at the Law Offices of Gregory Krasovsky today to schedule a free consultation and learn how our law firm can help you receive just treatment.
