Equal Pay for Equal Work

Pennsylvania Employment Rights Lawyer

The Equal Pay Act and other laws require employers to provide equal pay for workers who perform jobs in the same workplace that require substantially equal skill, effort and responsibility. Though the act has been the law of the land since 1963, there are still employers who fail to live up to their obligations.

At Samuel J. Cordes & Associates, we are strong advocates for employees who have been denied the pay they deserve under the law. If you receive substantially less pay than others in your workplace who perform the same tasks, we will stand up for you.

What is "Equal Work"?

The concept "equal pay for equal work" sounds simple enough, but in actual practice an employer is allowed to pay more to a person based on seniority, quality of work output and other factors.

An attorney at our firm can review your case. If it has merit, we can take action to enable you to obtain the compensation and benefits you deserve.

The Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, enacted in 2009, expands a worker's right to sue by renewing the six month statute of limitations every time a paycheck is issued.
