1. T/F: Plaintiff Wendy Vehar appeals the district court’s grant of summary
judgment for defendants regarding Vehar’s sex discrimination claims
under the federal Equal Pay Act (EPA). The federal appellate court
reverses the federal district court’s decision and remands it back to federal
district court for further proceedings.
Answer: True
2. What is legally required to establish a prima facie case of wage discrimination?
Answer: To establish prima facie case of wage discrimination under the Equal Pay Act,
the plaintiff must demonstrate that an employer pays different wages to employees of
opposite sexes for equal work on jobs the performance of which requires equal skill,
effort, and responsibility, and which are performed under similar working conditions.
The job functions of two individuals need not be identical to be considered “equal work”
under the Equal Pay Act. Instead there only needs to be a “substantial equality of skill,
effort, responsibility, and working conditions”.
3. Once the plaintiff establishes a prima facie case for wage discrimination, the burden of
proof shifts to the employer. The employer must evidence that the wage discrimination
resulted from (at least one) of four factors. What are the four factors?
Answer: 1. A seniority system
2. A merit system
3. A system that measures earnings by quantity or quality of production.
4. Any factor other than sex.
4. Which of the four factors did Cole National Group use to defend the wage
discrimination? What was their reasoning? What was the court’s opinion about Cole
National Group’s defense?
