The Equal Pay Act is listed under TN Code 50-2-202. It states that no employer may discriminate against employees who do the same job based on sex. However, as a Nashville equal pay act attorney can explain, employers may still offer differing wages to different employees, even those of different sexes, if the disparity is based on seniority, merit, or quotas.
The statute continues on to state that no person may be retaliated against for exercising their rights under this law. Where this law differs from the Federal version is that the Tennessee Equal Pay Act covers all employers.
