Sunoco Inc. is one of the latest companies caught up in the federal government's increased enforcement of equal pay laws.
The company was ordered to pay a total of $250,000 in back pay to 15 women.
As part of its settlement with the U.S. Labor Department, Sunoco will:
1. Develop standard policy for beginning salaries.
2. Train managers to apply the policy consistently.
3. Require second-level reviews of initial salary decisions to ensure they are fair and equitable.
Advice: To keep out of gender-pay disputes, these three exercises would be good for any company to follow. In addition, don't use "head of household" or "principle wage earner" classifications to justify higher pay for men.
