The Equal Pay Act and Compensation Discrimination in the Workplace Employers cannot use compensation to discriminate against employees. The Equal Pay Act prohibits employes from paying female employees less than their male counterparts for performing the same work. Similarly, the Equal Pay Act also prohibits employers from paying female employees more than their male counterparts for the same work.
The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act amended Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VII requires claims for discrimination to be brought within 180 days from the date of discrimination. The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act resets the 180 day period with every pay check issued as part of the discriminatory scheme.
