Introduction
The Cole National Group began their business in 1984 in Twinsburg, Ohio and they provide
vision care services and products throughout the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean
(Tolle, 2008, para. 3). Wendy Vehar, an employee of Cole National Group (CNG), filed a
gender discrimination lawsuit with the United States District Court. Under the Federal Equal
Pay Act (EPA), Vehar accuses her employer of paying two male co-workers, Eric Leipold and
Dave Crosley, who perform substantial “equal work” as her, higher annual salaries than the
annual salary she received (Jones, 2017, para. 5). The district court dismissed Vehar’s complaint
and granted CNGs motion for summary judgement. Wendy Vehar knew she had enough proof

court’s decision (Walsh, 2016, 450).
Wendy Vehar was hired to work at Cole National Group’s Twinsburg office in January

para. 1). Her qualifications for the Data Analyst position consisted of a four-year bachelor’s
degree in mathematics, a minor in computer science, and six years and eight months of on the

Programmer Analyst in May 2000. The Programmer Analyst position had a pay grade of 29 and
Leipold’s salary began at $60,000 dollars (Walsh, 2016, p. 449). Leipold’s qualifications at the
time of hiring consisted of nine years industry experience and no educational degrees. The
second male co-worker mentioned was Dave Crosley. He was hired a half a year before Vehar
