What Is The Equal Pay Act?

The Equal Pay Act (EPA) of 1963 mandates equal pay for men and women performing substantially similar work under similar conditions. It applies to most employers with two or more employees engaged in interstate commerce.

Wage discrimination based on gender is prohibited, except when justified by factors unrelated to gender, such as seniority or merit systems.

The EPA enforces strict liability on employers, making them liable for pay disparities regardless of intent. Employees can seek remedies through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or legal action, including back pay and liquidated damages. The EPA aims to eliminate gender-based wage disparities in the workplace.

What Is Considered "Equal Work" or "Substantially Equal Work"?

Equal work or substantially similar work encompasses tasks that closely match in skill, effort, and responsibility, and are performed under similar conditions.

  • Skill denotes job-related experience, ability, education, and training.
  • Effort quantifies the physical or mental exertion required.
  • Responsibility gauges the degree of duties and accountability involved.
  • Working conditions encompass the physical environment, including factors like temperature, fumes, and hazards.

Importantly, "substantially equal work" doesn't mandate identical job titles but rather work demanding similar levels of skill, effort, and responsibility.
