Department of Labor Sues JPMorgan Chase for Allegedly Paying Females Less Than Males

     The United States Department of Labor recently filed a lawsuit against JPMorgan Chase & Co., which alleges that JPMorgan Chase discriminated against female employees in certain positions by paying them less than it paid male counterparts.  The Department of Labor found that JPMorgan Chase has paid nearly one hundred female employees less than male comparators in various positions at the company.  The lawsuit was filed by the Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, which alleges that JPMorgan Chase has violated an executive order that prohibits federal contractors from discrimination on the basis of sex, which includes disparate payment because of a person’s sex.
