Equal Pay Litigation
Do you suspect you’re being paid less than men in your workplace? Social attitudes and the law have changed, but employers have been slow to ensure their employees receive equal pay. As a result, hardworking women across Tennessee are being paid less than their male counterparts and they deserve equal compensation. An equal pay claim is a claim alleging that your employer pays or has paid you less than men in the workplace performing similar duties. In bringing a successful equal pay claim, you may be entitled to as much as double the amount of unpaid wages from your employer.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Tennessee Equal Pay ACT (TEPA) require women to be given equal pay as men for doing the same type of work. Both statutes can apply to your case.
