What Is Equal Pay Under The Law?
New Jersey Workers Have A Right To Receive Equal Pay For Equal Work
The employment relationship is not free from the biases and shortcomings of our society. The wage gap is evidence of persistent discrimination against women, people of color, people with disabilities and other targeted groups. New Jersey has taken steps in recent years to address this discrimination as it pertains to equal pay for equal work.
The Diane B. Allen Equal Pay Act is one of the most advanced efforts in the country to stop pay discrimination. It should help close loopholes that employers have used for decades to get away with paying some classes of employees less for their efforts. If the act is applied aggressively, it can help countless New Jersey workers gain access to the pay and benefits they deserve.
