In a press release issued today, the EEOC announced that the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, a university located in the Tenth Circuit, has agreed to pay $2.66 million to settle an Equal Pay Act claim brought by female law professors.  The lawsuit alleged that as of October 2013 female full law professors were paid salaries on average $19,781 less than male full professors and that all of the women's salaries were below the average salary paid to men.  

This settlement suggests caution to all employers who should review their payroll to assure that their is no gender inequities in salaries and wages.
