A few weeks ago we wrote to you about Women’s History Month, and the work OFCCP is doing to support women in the workplace.
Tomorrow we’re celebrating Equal Pay Day! On Equal Pay Day, OFCCP is reminded of the importance of pay parity and our commitment to equal employment compliance assistance.
Here are a couple of things you should know about equal pay and your rights under the law:
Gender-based discrimination in the rates of pay and other forms of compensation is prohibited under Executive Order 11246.
Individuals are entitled under federal law to report instances of alleged sex-based discrimination, and are protected against retaliatory behavior.
Federal contractors and subcontractors can review OFCCP Directive 2018-05 to learn more about OFCCP’s approach to conducting compensation evaluations. We also have answers to Frequently Asked Questions about our approach.
