Equal Pay Act
Gray Reed's Employer Handbook

This June marked the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy Administration’s Equal Pay Act, a law designed to help equalize wages between men and women.  According to statistics quoted around the time of the anniversary, a gap of between 20 and 23% still exists in pay between men and women.  So, the law remains important.

With the publicity the anniversary has drawn, I anticipate an uptick in claims this year.  To help you avoid getting caught in this situation, I dedicated this month’s edition to the Act.  It has an interesting and important way of comparing jobs between men and women, of which employers are largely unaware. 

Take a look at this month’s edition to fine tune your understanding on this important topic.
