Equal Pay For Women
The Equal Pay Act (EPA) was passed in 1963 with the goal of mandating that women in the workplace receive pay equal to men for equal work on jobs whose performance requires equal skill, effort and responsibility, and which are performed under similar working conditions.
The Equal Pay Act Doesn’t End Wage Discrimination; We Do
Despite the law being on the books, employers in southeast Texas often ignore the provisions of the EPA. It is not uncommon for women to stand side by side with men doing the same job for the same number of years while earning significantly less pay.
If you are a female employee in southeast Texas and are seeking the right to equal pay under the provisions of the EPA, talk to an attorney at Warren & Siurek, L.L.P., in Houston. Employment law is all we do.
