Compensation Discrimination Louisville
This section basically stands for the proposition of equal pay for equal work. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 along with other Federal legislation require an employer to compensate employees without regard to their race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age or disability. This includes all base pay, bonuses, stock options, vacation and holiday pay, and any other benefits provided.
Men and women should be given equal pay for equal work in the same establishment under The Equal Pay Act of 1963. It is not the job title that determines whether jobs are substantially equal, but the job content. The courts look at the skill, effort, responsibility, working conditions, and establishment of the job to determine if an employer can pay an employee differently. For example, if at a store two people do basically the same job, except one has more responsibility as to closing the store and throwing out the trash, then that employee may get paid more than the other similarly tilted employee, even thought they both are entitled salesperson, one clearly has more duties than the other. Pay differentials are permitted only when they are based on seniority, merit, quantity or quality of production, or a factor other than sex.
