Females Are Allowed To Complain About Not Being Paid The Same As Men

   The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity reports that it has reached a settlement of over $36,000 with a company providing commercial janitorial services that allegedly had discriminated against a female employee by paying her less than a male counterpart and then retaliating against her.  Rivera worked as a day porter who janitorial services.  The EEOC claims that Rivera complained about the difference in her wages compared to male employees and that she requested a raise.  Instead of receiving the raise, the EEOC alleges that Rivera was assigned more work, subject to verbal harassment by the company, and then terminated.  See EEOC v. Vador Ventures, Inc., No. 1:17-cv-01083-TSE-IDD (E.D. Va.).
