DISCRIMINATORY WAGE RATES BASED UPON SEX
44-1702. Discriminatory payment of wages based upon sex prohibited. (1) No employer shall discriminate between or among employees in the same establishment on the basis of sex, by paying wages to any employee in any occupation in this state at a rate less than the rate at which he pays any employee of the opposite sex for comparable work on jobs which have comparable requirements relating to skill, effort and responsibility. Differentials which are paid pursuant to established seniority systems or merit increase systems, which do not discriminate on the basis of sex, are not within this prohibition.
(2) No person shall cause or attempt to cause an employer to discriminate against any employee in violation of this act.
(3) No employer may discharge or discriminate against any employee by reason of any action taken by such employee to invoke or assist in any manner the enforcement of this act.
