According to theCalifornia Equal Pay Act, employers are prohibited from paying any of their employees wage rates that are less than what it plays employees of the opposite sex, another race, or a different ethnicity, for substantially similar work when viewed as a composite of skill, effort, and responsibility, and performed under similar working conditions. There are many different types of discrimination, but some of the most common types seen in the workplace include the following:
- Sex and gender discrimination
- Racial discrimination
- Disability discrimination
- Age discrimination
Employees suffering from wage discrimination can be challenged in many ways, especially when trying to take legal action for an employer’s wrongdoing. The workplace should be a safe space, so it’s important to know that you should never feel wrong for taking legal action.
