Can’t Pay Women Less Than Men for Doing Same Job

     NFI RoadRail, LLC and NFI Industries, Inc. have reportedly agreed to pay $45,000 to settle a gender discrimination lawsuit.  The lawsuit alleged that the companies paid a female director less than three male directors who had worked in the same role.  The female director discovered the pay disparity after she saw a pay stub for one of the former male directors.  The Equal Pay Act of 1963 prohibits employers from paying women a lower salary than men for equal work.  See Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. NFI Industries, No. 3:14-cv-00181-N (N.D. Tex. 2014)
