Summary of differences between federal and state regulations
Employer shall mean a person engaged in an industry who has fifteen or more employees for each working day in each of twenty or more calendar weeks in the current or preceding calendar year, any agent of such person, and any party whose business is financed in whole or in part under the Nebraska Investment Finance Authority Act, and includes the State of Nebraska, its governmental agencies, and political subdivisions, regardless of the number of employees, but such term does not including the United States, a corporation wholly owned by the government of the United States, or an Indian tribe.
Unlawful employment practices
The unlawful employment practices and exemptions are similar to those under the federal Equal Pay Act. Discriminating on the basis of sex includes paying wages to employees of one sex at a lesser rate than the rate paid to employees of the opposite sex for comparable work on jobs which have comparable requirements. A charge with the state must be filed within four years of the alleged violation.
Every employer subject to the Equal Pay Act of Nebraska must make, keep, and maintain records as prescribed in regulation by the Equal Opportunity Commission. However, no such regulation has yet been issued by the state. The recordkeeping requirements of the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) still apply, however.
Every person subject to the Equal Pay Act of Nebraska must keep an abstract or copy of the Act posted in a conspicuous place in or about the premises wherein any employee is employed.
