Austin Equal Pay Lawyer
An individual’s pay should be based on nothing more than their ability to do the job well. Sadly, in far too many cases, workers continue to receive unequal pay for their work on the basis of bias or discrimination on the part of employers. For this reason, equal pay laws have been put in place to help prevent and prohibit this type of behavior.
