The Supreme Court Finally Addresses the Rizo Case … in Part.
Aileen Rizo’s Fight for Fair Pay Continues.
On August 30, 2018, Fresno County Superintendent of Schools filed a petition for appeal with the Supreme Court of the United States to challenge the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which had found in favor of Aileen Rizo’s Equal Pay Act case. The Ninth Circuit had held that using prior salary alone, as a “factor other than sex” or in combination with other factors, cannot justify a wage differential under the Equal Pay Act.
