The Equal Pay Act mandates that employers pay female and male employees the same pay for the same work. However, the work performed does not have to be exactly the same. It does not matter whether you are a male or female employee, the Equal Pay Act requires equal pay for both genders.
In 2008, the Congress passed the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. This law ensures that employees can bring equal pay claims regardless of when the employer began its discriminatory pay practice.
Often, equal pay claims are brought as class actions.
