A woman is hired by a multi-state energy company to manage a fleet of 250 vehicles and perform various facilities management duties. Over time she takes on more duties including managing construction projects in several states. The company then hires a male to take over her fleet management responsibilities and gives him a starting salary 31% higher than her salary. The woman, who is required to train her new colleague, is eventually fired allegedly because of performance issues. The company then hires another male as its facilities manager at a salary 39% higher than the woman’s last salary. The woman sues the company for violation of the Equal Pay Act (EPA) and Title VII.
