Compensation & Pay Discrimination Lawyers
Is a coworker of the opposite sex being paid more than you, even though you both do the same job? Is that employee’s compensation package considerably better than yours? Even if your titles are different, if you are both performing essentially the same job duties, you may have a claim for Pay Discrimination. The knowledgeable attorneys of Granovsky & Sundaresh are available to explain your rights and help you pursue a claim to obtain just compensation.
About Compensation & Pay Discrimination
The federal law governing compensation and equal pay is the Equal Pay Act. The Equal Pay Act requires employers to pay their male and female workers equally for substantially equal work. The requirement for equality applies to all forms of compensation, including rate of pay, salary, overtime, profit sharing, stock options, bonus plans, holiday and vacation pay, travel expense reimbursement, and other compensation. If your employer violates this law, you have the option of filing a Charge of Discrimination with the EEOC or pursing a lawsuit in court.
