Equal Pay/Comparable Worth
Two federal statutes prohibit gender-based differences
in pay: the Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA) and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII). Title VII and other federal laws also prohibit pay discrimination
based on race, color, religion, national origin, age, and disability.
Although the EPA and Title VII both prohibit pay discrimination based
on gender, the laws differ in several aspects, including coverage,
enforcement, and remedies.
