Tech Industry (Equal Pay)

The average American woman makes 75-80% of what her male counterpart makes. The gender pay gap also extends to the technology industry.

Federal and state laws require employers to compensate men and women in the same workplace equally for equal work. Under the federal Equal Pay Act, men and women must be given equal pay for equal work in the same establishment. The jobs need not be identical, but they must be substantially equal. It is job content, not job titles, that determines whether jobs are substantially equal.

California recently passed the California Fair Pay Act, which further strengthened the state’s existing equal pay laws, and made it illegal for employers to prohibit their employees from discussing or inquiring about their co-workers’ wages.

If you work in the tech industry and are paid less than a male counterpart for performing substantially equal work, you may have a claim. Let our equal rights’ attorneys help you level the playing field and get the fair pay you deserve.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss your potential claim, please contact our clerk Tessa Asong-Morfaw at (612) 256-3240 or via email at masong-morfaw@nka.com.
