Equal Pay Act
It is illegal if your employer considers your sex in determining your pay. Federal and state laws prohibit employers from paying you less based on sex. Pay discrimination can take many forms, including:
- Inequitable base pay.
- Exclusion from sex-specific meetings or networking opportunities.
- Limited access to customers, leads, and projects.
- Sex-specific advancement programs.
- Restricted access to non-competitive promotion opportunities.
If you are performing the same or substantially similar job duties as someone of the opposite sex under similar working conditions and you are being paid less, you may have an equal pay claim.
If you have been paid less because of your sex, you have a limited amount of time to report and preserve your claims. It’s important to take action quickly. Call the experienced lawyers at Werman Salas P.C., for a free and private consultation.
