"Employers always try to hide behind the argument that there is a 'factor other than gender' at play. That it's about some other metric — experience, education, seniority — and they will do everything they can to grab on to that defense."

In this episode, Justin and guest Jesse Young discuss how employees can know whether they are being paid fairly. The discussion centers around the Equal Pay Act, which is a subset of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

The show addresses questions like, “Am I getting paid for all hours I’ve worked?” and, “Am I getting paid the same amount as others doing the same work?” It also addresses rules about whether you can talk about your pay with other employees in the workplace.

Despite the progress that has been made over the last several decades toward evening the pay gap between men and women, many lawsuits alleging discriminatory pay are filed every year. In 2018, for example, there were over 1,000 complaints filed concerning alleged violations of the Equal Pay Act.
