  • In a January 15, 2019 decision, a federal court judge ruled that New Jersey’s Diane B. Allen Equal Pay Act (EPA) may not be applied retroactively. The U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, in Perrotto v. Morgan Advanced Materials, PLC, dismissed two counts which were brought under the EPA, but which were predicated upon facts that predated the statute’s enactment.
