Equal Pay & Fair Compensation – It’s Your Right! Consumer Attorneys Helps You Get Equal Pay and More!

There are many Americans who view this country as a dream, or at the very least, as a place where you can make the best of your opportunities and achieve anything you set your mind to, regardless of your roots. Yet, for groups of women, this pictured existence is not always as positive as it is for others and often falls short of equality and equal opportunities.

One of the very apparent shortcomings that some people still face is equal pay. The lack of pay equity amongst men and women is still very obvious. It is unfortunate that women experience receiving less pay than their male colleagues for equal  or more work. Although great efforts have been made regarding the pay issue, many employers continue to act unfairly towards women. Equal pay lawyers at Consumer Attorneys can help if you are facing this in the workplace. Asking for fairness and equality at work is not a privilege, it is your right provided by the Equal Pay Act! 

Your Rights Under the Equal Pay Act (EPA)

The Equal Pay Act (EPA) is a federal law committed to ending the pay gaps between women and men workers based on sex. Notably, the act is aimed at protecting all sexes. Under the act, there are several factors that must exist in order for a worker to have an Equal Pay Act claim against an employer. Skill, effort, and responsibility are just some of what an equal pay claim must consider in order to hold an employer responsible for unfair pay. Employers must make sure that there is no inequality in wages between people of opposite sexes who are performing what the EPA refers to as “substantially equal jobs.” This means if there is a discrepancy found, the employer has a duty to raise the wages in order to equalize pay, while maintaining the current wages of the other individuals. If an employer fails to fix an unequal pay situation, you are likely facing equal pay discrimination and should contact our firm immediately!
