What is Gender Pay Discrimination?
Gender pay discrimination occurs when an employer pays an employee less than another employee who is doing the same job, simply because of the employee's gender. This is illegal under both state and federal law.
There are a few different ways that gender pay discrimination can occur. The most common is when an employer pays a man and a woman differently for doing the same job. For example, if a man and a woman are both working as cashiers at a store, and the man is paid $10 per hour while the woman is only paid $8 per hour, this would be an example of gender pay discrimination.
Gender pay discrimination can also occur when men and women are paid differently for doing jobs that are similar, but not exactly the same. This is known as "pay equity" or "comparable worth" discrimination. For example, if a man and a woman are both working as customer service representatives, but the man is paid $12 per hour while the woman is only paid $10 per hour, this could be an example of pay equity discrimination.
