The Kansas Equal Pay Law prohibits employers from discriminating against employees within any establishment where the employees work by paying employees of one sex wages at a rate less than the rate of wages paid to employees of the opposite sex for equal work on jobs requiring equal skill, effort, and responsibility, performed under similar working conditions. The Law applies to all employers in the state regardless of size (KS Stat. Sec. 44-1205).
Retaliation prohibited. Employers are prohibited from discharging or discriminating against any employee who has filed a wage complaint, instituted a proceeding, testified in a proceeding, or is about to take any such action (KS Stat. Sec. 44-1210).
