Call 866-716-2315 or 717-260-3646 for a Lawyer's Advice About Equal Pay
Our attorneys advise women about their rights in freestanding equal pay cases and in situations where an equal pay claim might relate to a broader pattern of sex discrimination on the part of an employer. We review the facts of each case and all relevant strategic options with each client in order to find the most effective route toward a fair outcome.
Unlike discrimination and harassment claims, charges of specific violations of the Federal Equal Pay Act can be pursued directly in federal court, which can expedite a favorable settlement or trial result. On the other hand, pursuing claims for equal pay in conjunction with other violations of workplace rights can result in a greater overall damages award.
With a practice focused primarily on state and federal employment law, our lawyers can advise you about the strengths and weaknesses of your case, the most promising legal strategies to pursue, and the pros and cons of accepting a settlement offer or settlement package in compromise of your claims.
McCarthy Weisberg Cummings, P.C., advises women with equal pay claims in many different industries, including high tech, banking, academia, insurance, communications and the professions.
