Defending a claim made under the Equal Pay Act


SKU: ELBma154. Category: .


Abstract: After a discrimination claim was filed by a female attorney in her employer’s law department, the EEOC began a three-year investigation into the employer’s pay practices. It then filed a complaint, alleging that female and male nonsupervisory attorneys received unequal pay for performing equal work. But, as this article explains, both the district and appeals courts found the EEOC’s claims to be too general in nature. Still, the case indicates why it’s important for employers to maintain detailed job descriptions that account for the differences among their various positions. E.E.O.C. v. Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, No. 13-2705-CV, Sept. 29, 2014 (2nd Cir.)
