Right to be Free of Gender Inequity  
or Bias in Pay, Compensation, Benefits  
or Other Terms and Conditions of Employment
New Jersey and federal laws prohibit employers from discriminating again\
st an individual with  
respect to his/her pay, compensation, benefits, or terms, conditions or privileges of employment 
because of the individual’s sex.
FEDERAL LAW
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employment discrimination based on, among other th\
ings, 
an individual’s sex. Title VII claims must be filed with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity 
Commission (EEOC) before they can be brought in court. Remedies under  Title VII may include an order 
restraining unlawful discrimination, back pay, and compensatory and punitive damages.
The Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA) prohibits discrimination in compensation based on sex. EPA claims can be 
filed either with the EEOC or directly with the court. Remedies under the EP A may include the amount of the 
salary or wages due from the employer, plus an additional equal amount as liquidated damages.
Please be mindful that in order for a disparity in compensation based on sex to be actionable under the EP A, 
it must be for equal work on jobs the performance of which requires equal skill, effort, and responsibility, and 
which are performed under similar working conditions.
There are strict time limits for filing charges of employment discrimination. For further information, contact the 
EEOC at 800-669-4000 or at www.eeoc.gov.
NEW JERSEY LAW
The New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD) prohibits employment discrimination based on, among other 
things, an individual’s sex. LAD claims can be filed with the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights (NJDCR) or 
directly in court. Remedies under the LAD may include an order restraining unlawful discrimination, back pay , 
and compensatory and punitive damages.
Another State law, N.J.S.A. 34:11-56.1 et seq., prohibits discrimination in the rate or method of payment of 
wages to an employee because of his or her sex. Claims under this wage discrimination law may be filed with 
the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (NJDLWD) or directly in court. Remedies 
under this law may include the full amount of the salary or wages owed, plus an additional equal amount as 
liquidated damages.
Please be mindful that under the State wage discrimination law a differential in pay between employees based 
on a reasonable factor or factors other than sex shall not constitute di\
scrimination.
There are strict time limits for filing charges of employment discrimination. For more information regarding LAD 
claims, contact the NJDCR at 609-292-4605 or at www.njcivilrights.gov.  For information concerning N.J.S.A. 
34:11-56.1 et seq., contact the Division of Wage and Hour Compliance within the NJDLWD at 609-292-2305 or
