The Fight for Equal Pay For Men & Women

The Equal Pay Act of 1963 is a law that aims to address disparities between the salaries of men and women. It was signed into law by former President John F. Kennedy. Many people believe that it is literal in the sense that it refers to equal pay for men and women who hold the exact position, but this is not the case. It is meant to address instances when people with the same level of skill, education, and effort are given variable pay solely because of their gender.

Equal Pay Claims

While you have the right to file an equal pay claim and be named as the sole plaintiff, paying employees disproportionately is often a problem that affects many who work for the same company. For this reason, it is common for these cases to be brought as collective (class) actions.

Many people are reluctant to participate in this type of case because they fear retaliation. But the law protects against that as well. It is unlawful for an employer to retaliate against any employee who joins a collective action seeking to remedy pay disparities between men and women.

If you believe that equal pay for men and women is something that has occurred at your place of employment, please contact us today. Our Dallas wage equality attorney may be able to help.
