Equal Pay Act Settlement

     The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission recently settled a lawsuit for $20,000 in which the EEOC had alleged that a company paid one of its female welders less than it paid to its male welders who had the same amount of experience and skill.  The Equal Pay Act prohibits employers from paying its employees less because of their sex, and this alleged conduct is a violation of the Equal Pay Act.  See Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. SnoBear USA, Inc., No. 18-cv-3446-JNE-KMM (D. Minn.).
