Rizo v. Yovino
United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit
950 F.3d 1217 (2020)
Aileen Rizo (plaintiff) was hired by the Fresno County Office of Education (the county) (defendant). Under the county’s pay policy, a new employee’s salary was based solely on the wages from the employee’s prior job. In accordance with this policy, Rizo’s salary at the county was based solely on the wages from her prior job. Later, Rizo learned that she was paid less than male colleagues who performed the same work. The county did not explain how prior pay was indicative of Rizo’s ability to perform her job. Rizo brought suit, alleging that the county’s pay policy violated the Equal Pay Act of 1963. The county filed a motion for summary judgment, which was denied by the district court. The county appealed.
