An employer accused of an Equal Pay Act violation may be held liable, without a showing of intent. If an employer pays persons of different sex differently and is alleged to have done so on the basis of sex, the employer must prove one of the following: 1) a seniority system; (2) a merit system; (3) a pay system based on quantity or quality of output; (4) a disparity based on any factor other than sex. Failure to carry the burden of proof can subject the employer to liability under the EPA, regardless of intent.
