Market Burgers, which owns a Checkers fast-food franchise in West Philadelphia, faces charges it pays women less than men and doesn’t let women work as many hours as men.
The EEOC has sued the company on behalf of a shift manager who alleges the company pays male shift managers more than women who do the same work. She claims the practice extends to sandwich makers and other positions.
The lawsuit also alleges the company schedules men for more hours and sends women home first when business is slow.
The complaint alleges women average 25-30 hours of work per week, while men average more than 30 hours.
Advice: Regularly review pay and scheduling practices to ensure no unconscious discrimination has crept into either process.
