The gender pay gap in the united methodist church

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The Supreme Court ruled in Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission et al., (2012) that employment-discrimination laws do not protect church ministers. However, little is known about the extent of discrimination in church settings. Using data from a United Methodist Church Conference this study finds no evidence of gender discrimination in pay.
