Examining Federal and State Pay Equity Laws in Texas | Academic Article individual record
abstract

The purpose of this paper is twofold: 1) to provide interscholastic administrators and coaches a working knowledge base and understanding of the federal pay equity laws in place; and 2) to demonstrate how state laws can oftentimes contradict the federal mandates. Specifically, this study compares Texas Constitutional and organizational laws and regulations of several federal laws, including the Equal Pay Act of 1963, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. The intricacies of both federal and state policies emphasize the importance for both administrators and coaches to further educate themselves in order to prevent substantial risk management issues or the loss of potential revenue by coaches.
