Equal Pay Act of Nebraska

It is unlawful to discriminate on the basis of sex by paying wages to one sex at a lesser rate than the rate paid to employees of the opposite sex for comparable work on jobs.

The law also contains provisions barring retaliation.  Anyone who has opposed any practice made unlawful by the statutes or who has participated in any manner in any proceeding to enforce the statutes is protected.  

There is a filing deadline.  From the date of any alleged harm, the time limit for a Equal Pay charge is 4 years.  Federal filing deadlines may be different.  However, if you believe you have been discriminated against, do not wait too long.
