In New York City, The Sanders Firm, P.C. represents clients in discrimination claims in relationship to the Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA). The EPA is specifically concerned with compensation discrimination of women in the workplace. The EPA protects female employees from being treated differently in receiving compensation for the work they perform. In essence, according to the law, men and women are to receive equal pay for equal work, and if an employer is engaged in compensation discrimination in relationship to the EPA they are not treating their female employees equally. Areas in which employees may experience compensation discrimination include salary, stock options, employee stock ownership programs (ESOP), profit sharing, etc.
Often times, employees or applicants will pursue claims of discrimination under Title VII, the NYSHRL and NYCHRL and in some cases, the Civil Rights Act of 1866, 42 U.S.C. § 1981 and/or Civil Rights Act of 1871, 42 U.S.C. § 1983. The Sanders Firm, P.C., is experienced in handling such matters.
