Recent statistics show that wide pay gaps exist between male and female physicians in Maryland, with female physicians earning approximately 50% less on average than males. Female physicians in Maryland earn less than male physicians in the same specialty. Average annual income for female family medicine physicians, for example, is $164,000 compared to $234,000 for males, a difference of 48%.
Ironically, Maryland has an Equal Pay for Equal Work labor law. The law prohibits an employer from discriminating between employees by:
- paying a wage to employees of one sex or gender identity at a rate less than the rate paid to other employees under certain circumstances; or
- providing less favorable employment opportunities as defined by the law, based on sex and gender identity.
MDAFP is very concerned with this problem, and is offering you the following resources to better help you identify and address this problem in your workplace, and within our State:
