Equal Pay/Compensation Discrimination

J. Graves Associates represents employees who are not paid the wages they are due. The Equal Pay Act requires that men and women in the same workplace be given equal pay for equal work.

The jobs need not be identical, but they must be substantially equal. Job content (not job titles) determines whether jobs are substantially equal. All forms of pay are covered by this law, including salary, overtime pay, bonuses, stock options, profit sharing and bonus plans, life insurance, vacation and holiday pay, cleaning or gasoline allowances, hotel accommodations, reimbursement for travel expenses, and benefits. If there is an inequality in wages between men and women, employers may not reduce the wages of either sex to equalize their pay.

Aside from the EPA, other federal laws such as Title VII, the ADEA, and the ADA as well as State laws prohibit compensation discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability.

If you believe you are not being paid for all of the time you have worked, or you are not being paid overtime due to you, or you are being treated differently because of your race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability, please contact J.Graves Associates and we will aggressively pursue your claims in court.
