Paycheck Fairness Act Proposal Shut Down: No Required Equal Pay for Women

Are you ready to make some real money moves?

The Paycheck Fairness Act is a legislative proposal that would benefit the Equal Pay Act, originally written in 1963. This bill proposed that workers would get paid equally, regardless of their gender. 


On June 11, 2021, the Senate failed to pass this bill, which would have held employers accountable when failing to provide equal pay for their female employees. Unfortunately, since the bill didn’t advance past the United States Senate, employers will not be held accountable, by law, if a female employee were to accuse them of pay discrimination compared to their male counterparts.
