Employers Must Comply with Equal Pay Laws

/ 04/26/2012

Dallas, Texas employment lawyer Keith Clouse handles all aspects of employment law, including equal pay issues. Women make up nearly half of America’s workforce, yet, a significant gender earnings gap persists.


Mr. Clouse explains some of the laws designed to close this gap:
• Equal Pay Act: This law requires all employers to pay equal wages to women and men in the same establishment for performing substantially equal work. This applies to all forms of pay (salary, overtime pay, bonuses, stock options, vacation pay, and other forms of compensation). Unequal compensation can be justified only if the pay differential is attributable to a factor other than gender or to a fair seniority, merit, or incentive system.
• Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964: This law prohibits employers with at least 15 employees from discriminating against employees on the basis of their sex in all terms and conditions of employment, including pay.
• Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009: This law clarifies that each paycheck that contains discriminatory compensation is actionable under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.


Employers should review their pay practices to ensure that their compensation systems are not discriminatory. To discuss equal pay issues with Mr. Clouse, contact him and the other Dallas, Texas employment lawyers at Clouse Dunn LLP via email at [email protected] or telephone at 214 220 3888.
