Miami Equal Pay Act (EPA) Lawyer
Trust Our Florida Employment Law Attorneys
Under law, the Equal Pay Act requires that workers are compensated fairly
and equally, regardless of their gender. If you are performing the same
job under the same or similar working conditions to another employee of
another gender and have found out that they are being paid more than you,
you may have grounds for a lawsuit.
A Miami employment law attorney may be able to investigate the circumstances
by looking at similar employees and making a comparison of the pay. At
Remer & Georges-Pierre PLLC, we are not afraid to go up against your
employer to right an illegal and wrong situation. If we bring a lawsuit
forward, we can make a very strong case on your behalf.
- Under the Equal Pay Act, there may be no discrimination or unfair pay based
on gender when the following are involved:
- Equal work
What Does the Court Consider in an EPA Case?
The court may look at an EPA lawsuit differently than the law, beyond just
the job title or label that the person or people in question have. For
example, if the duties and qualifications are the same, it will raise
a red flag that another person was paid significantly more with a fancy
title. Men and women often work together doing the same job, but a man
may have a management title, while a woman has an administrative title
in order to pay different salaries.
If you suspect that you have grounds for a lawsuit, such as having been
treated unfairly in the workplace, making less than an equal counterpart,
or have been denied benefits, seek the advice of a Miami employment law attorney.
