I Work In The Same Job Classification As A Person Of The Opposite Sex, But I Am Paid Less. Is This Legal?

No employer shall discriminate between employees in the same establishment on the basis of sex by paying one employee more or less than he pays to any employee of the opposite sex for comparable skill, effort and responsibility in which they are performed under similar working conditions. However, nothing prohibits wage deferential based on a seniority system, a merit system, a system, which measures earnings by quality production or any other reasonable deferential which is based on a factor other than sex.
