The Wyoming Equal Pay Law requires employers to pay men and women equally for work that requires equal skill, effort and responsibility and which is performed under similar working conditions, except where the payment is made pursuant to:
• A seniority system or a merit system;
• A system which measures earning by quantity or quality of production; or
• A differential based on any factor other than gender (WY Stat. Sec. 27-4-301 et seq.).
The Law applies to all employers in the state and any individual acting in the interest of an employer.
The Wyoming Fair Employment Practices Act prohibits employers from discriminating in the compensation of employees on the basis of age (40 and older), sex, race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry, pregnancy, or disability (WY Stat. Sec. 27-9-101 et seq.). The Act covers employers with two or more employees.
