Wage Decisions Cannot Be Based On Employees’ Sex

     The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission settled a lawsuit with Spec Formliners, Inc. that alleged the company had made wage decisions on the basis of its employees’ sex.  The EEOC’s lawsuit alleged that the company had paid one of its female sales representatives less than a male sales representative, and also that the company required her to make more sales than the male representative in order for her to earn the same sales commission.  The Equal Pay Act of 1963 and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits paying an employee less on the basis of her sex.  See EEOC v. Spec Formliners, Inc., No. 8:16-cv-02066-BRO-AJW (C.D. Cal.).
