The law requires an employer to provide equal pay to men and women who are performing the same type of job. This right is afforded by federal law – such as the Equal Pay Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 – as well as most state discrimination laws. Equal pay laws apply not only to wages / salary but also to other forms of compensation, such as health benefits, retirement benefits, bonuses, commissions, and expense reimbursement. If your workplace violates a law relating to equal pay, then the employer is not allowed to reduce the pay of one gender in order to match that of the other gender.
If you are a male or female who is equally qualified as a person of the opposite sex but have been denied the same pay for the same job duties performed, then it is important that you contact an attorney from The Powell Law Firm as soon as possible. Regardless of whether you are male or female, you should not be discriminated against or harassed for your gender. These archaic beliefs that one gender should make more money than the other need to be addressed, and the team at The Powell Law Firm can ensure that you receive compensation for the wrongs that have been done to you.
