Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
Here you can file with EEOC , this is wage discrimination.
The Equal Pay Act requires that men and women in the same workplace be given equal pay for equal work. The jobs need not be identical, but they must be substantially equal. Job content (not job titles) determines whether jobs are substantially equal. All forms of pay are covered by this law, including salary, overtime pay, bonuses, stock options, profit sharing and bonus plans, life insurance, vacation and holiday pay, cleaning or gasoline allowances, hotel accommodations, reimbursement for travel expenses, and benefits. If there is an inequality in wages between men and women, employers may not reduce the wages of either sex to equalize their pay.
This amounts to wage discrimination.File your complaint and have this investigated.You may be due back pay and a raise.
