Equal Pay for Equal Work

I am one of four VP's in my company charged with identical responsibilities and duties: Q: Is it legal for each of us to have a different base pay and one of the four of us to have a seperate bonus structure that pays above and beyond a bonus dollar pool that the four of us participate in equally.

Equal Pay

It is legal if the distinction
is not based upon an impermissible
criterion, such as sex, race,
age, etc. If the distinction
is based upon an impermissible
factor, then the employer's
action may implicate
and violate) the
Equal Pay Act, Title VII of
the Civil Rights Act of 1964,
the Texas Commission on Human
Rights Act of 1983, or various
other laws. Simply, more
information is needed to
determine the answer to your
question.
