What Does the Court Consider in an EPA Case?
The court may look at an EPA lawsuit differently than the law, beyond just the job title or label that the person or people in question have. For example, if the duties and qualifications are the same, it will raise a red flag that another person was paid significantly more with a fancy title. Men and women often work together doing the same job, but a man may have a management title, while a woman has an administrative title in order to pay different salaries.
If you suspect that you have grounds for a lawsuit, such as having been treated unfairly in the workplace, making less than an equal counterpart, or have been denied benefits, seek the advice of a Miami employment law attorney.
