The DOL announced that it has filed a lawsuit against J.P. Morgan & Chase for violations of Executive Order 11246. Executive Order 11246 prohibits federal contractors from discriminating on the basis of sex. The lawsuit alleges that since 2012, the company paid women in several job categories (such as application developer leads and project managers) less than men in comparable positions, even after adjusting for non-discriminatory factors. The DOL’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs also found that the company failed to do required evaluation of compensation systems. More information about Executive Order 11246, including applicability and compliance guidance, is available at this DOL website.
