AD-290 (1/14) LABOR AND WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENTnj.gov/labor W D L NEW JERSEY DEP AR TMENT OF This notice must be conspicuously displayed. 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.
