 Equal Pay for Equal Work Act PDF

The Equal Pay for Equal Work Act is a labor law posters poster by the Georgia Department Of Labor. This is a mandatory posting for all employers in Georgia, and businesses who fail to comply may be subject to fines or sanctions.

This Georgia poster by law must be posted in a conspicuous place where all employees will see it. The poster describes the Equal Work Act, which is a law prohibiting either sex to get paid more or less for the same work. If employers break this law employers can get fined of up to $100. The poster also details who to contact should an employee be discriminated against.

The General Assembly of Georgia hereby declares that the practice of discriminating on the basis of sex by 
paying wages to employees of one sex at a lesser rate than the rate paid to employees of the opposite\
 sex for 
comparable work on jobs which require the same or essentially the same knowledge, skill, effort and responsibility 
unjustly discriminates against the person receiving the lesser rate:	
It is hereby declared to be the policy of the State of Georgia through the 
exercise of the police power of this State to correct and, as rapidly as\
to eliminate discriminatory wage practices based on sex.	
No employer having employees subject to any provisions of this section shall discriminate, within any establishment 
in which such employees are employed, between employees on the basis of \
sex by paying wages at a rate less 
than the rate paid to the opposite sex, EXCEPT WHERE SUCH PAYMENT IS MADE PURSUANT TO:	
1. 	A seniority system;	
2. 	A merit system;	
3. 	A system which measures earnings by quantity or quality of production, or\
4. 	A differential based on any other factor other than SEX: Provided, that an 
employer who is paying a wage rate differential in violation of this subsection 
shall not, in order to comply  with  the  provisions of  this  subsection, reduce 
the wage rate of any employee.	
It shall also be unlawful for any person to cause or attempt to cause an employer to discriminate against any 
employee in violation of the provisions of this Chapter.
It shall be unlawful for any person to discharge or in any other manner discriminate against any employee covered 
by this Chapter because such employee has made a complaint against the  employer or any other person or has 
instituted or caused to be instituted any proceeding under or related to this Chapter or has testified or is about to 
testify in any such proceedings. Any person who violates any provision of this Code section shall, upon conviction 
thereof, be punished by a fine not to exceed $100.00. (OCGA Section 34-5-3.)
