Equal Pay Act of 2003
The Equal Pay Act of 2003 prohibits employers from paying unequal wages to men and women for doing the same or substantially similar work, requiring equal skill, effort, and responsibility, under similar working conditions for the same employer in the same county, except if the wage difference is based upon a seniority system, a merit system, a system measuring earnings by quantity or quality of production, or factors other than gender. It also prohibits employers from paying African-American employees less than another employee who is not African-American for the same or substantially similar work.
