A handful of employees have filed a lawsuit against E.A. Renfroe & Company, Inc. alleging they and other workers were paid less than they should have been – all because of their race and gender. Allegedly, the defendant operated a “segregated job classification scheme” in which black women were paid less than white workers who performed the same job duties. The suit claims the women were paid $15 less as “claims associates” than their white male counterparts who did the same job, but were classified as “claims adjusters.” The suit alleges violations of both Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the Equal Pay Act.
