Make sure you have valid reasons for unequal pay

by on
in Human Resources

Valid reasons can include seniority, merit, quality of work, speed of production or, in this case, experience level. Comtech Manufacturing said it paid a male production supervisor 50 cents more an hour because he had more supervisory experience, albeit in a different field. That was good enough for a federal appeals court to dismiss a female co-worker's equal pay claim. (Wollenburg v. Comtech Manufacturing Co., No. 99-1714, 7th Cir., 2000)
