NYC Equal Pay Law Attorneys

Successfully Fighting Against Compensation Discrimination

BLG’s employment lawyers represent victims of equal pay/compensation discrimination in the workplace. All workers are covered by the Equal Pay Act which requires employers to pay men and women equally for doing the same work. 

In regard, to successfully have a claim in this area of law you must prove the following:

  • You and an employee of one sex;
  • Working at the same place; and
  • Doing substantially the same job (equal work) but receiving unequal pay than a person of the opposite sex.

Employers can attempt to justify pay inequality by proving:

  • A seniority system;
  • A merit system;
  • A system which measures quantity or quality of work; or
  • Any other reason other than gender for the difference in pay.

If you feel as though you have been underpaid for a discriminatory reason, contact one of our NYC pay discrimination attorneys at (800) 481-1467or fill out a form.

What Does “Equal Pay” Actually Mean?

Through the Equal Pay Act (EPA), employers must pay their employees at the same rate, but this does not mean that employees must get the same amount of compensation, in total. If an employee is paid more because their productivity is higher, then the employer is not violating the EPA.

The Equal Pay Act actually covers more than wages, it also covers other forms of compensation such as your bonus, paid time off, and even profit sharing. If employees do the same work, then they are also entitled to benefits such as health benefits, life insurance, retirement, and more.

Have questions about the EPA or do you believe that your employer is violating the Act? Do not hesitate to reach out to our equal pay lawyers in New York City at The Boyd Law Group, PLLC. We have years of experience and are prepared to help you understand your rights and your legal options. Contact us via online form or call (800) 481-1467 as soon as possible.
