Equal Pay / Compensation Discrimination

New York and Connecticut Equal Pay Lawyers

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 please contact one of our pay discrimination attorneys at (800) 617-4254 or fill out the form on the Contact Us page.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"Boyd Law Group were very supportive through the process. They worked hard and diligently from start to finish. They were very responsive and ensured I understood my rights and were there every step of the way. I can't thank both Patrick and Lorena enough for all the hard work they put in for me through this emotional process. True professionals! Thank you so much!" Lilly

"Patrick, Steve and the team at Boyd Law Group not only achieved a resolution that was more than fair...they were far more responsive and upfront than i would have initially expected given past experiences. They worked with me financially, and were very fair with managing my expectations. Moreover, given the group's experience, they are fair but strong negotiators, great listeners and put me, as a client, at ease. I won't think twice about approaching Boyd Law Group in the future...and recommending them to family/friends and coworkers in need of advice." Victor R.
