California law requires employers to pay men and women equal pay for the same or similar work. Examples of Equal Pay Act violations:
• Employers paying women less than men for the same work – for example, paying female teachers or professors less than male teachers or professors, paying female cooks less than male cooks, paying female drivers less than male drivers, etc.
• Employers paying women less than men for similar work – for example, paying hotel maids (whose jobs involving cleaning) less than hotel janitors (whose jobs also involve cleaning).
