The Equal Pay Act of 1963 stands as a bulwark against wage discrimination based on gender, ensuring that every employee, regardless of sex, receives equal pay for equal work. This comprehensive training delves into the nuances of the Act, covering its scope, the criteria for determining equal pay, and the consequences of non-compliance.
