Pay equity laws are an active area of regulation and debate right now. In September 2016, the EEOC had planned to use data from new reporting requirements to drive enforcement actions and complement its investigations of alleged pay discrimination. The new administration has not yet made its priorities clear, though they are expected to be different from the previous administration. Regardless of the federal initiatives, however, there is a great deal of activity at the state level. California, Massachusetts, Maryland and New York among other states have implemented and/or enacted groundbreaking changes to equal pay laws. The state laws include some provisions different from federal laws, and may see themselves as bulwarks against potential changes in federal priorities.
Furthermore, employers of all industries and sizes are facing questions about pay equity from their employees, shareholders, the press, and the general public. They increasingly face the difficult decision of whether to publicly disclose measures of their pay equity efforts and results.
Given the growing attention on pay equity, it is critical that employers conduct an internal audit of their pay practices to stay apace of their organizations' pay trends. An audit must be conducted with the assistance of a legal counsel so that it is protected by the attorney-client privilege and/or work product doctrine. Employers should also review their record-keeping mechanisms for purposes of the EEO-1 pay data requirement and their compensation policies and practices to ensure compliance with the various pay equity legislation.
In this live webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help employers understand the critical issues of the new pay equity requirements in the federal and state level. Speakers will also offer best practices to comply with these laws and minimize legal exposure.
Key topics include:
• New EEO-1 Reporting Requirements
• Covered Employers
• Pay Data Collection
• State Pay Equity Laws
• Factors to Explain Pay Differences
• Practical Implications for Employers
• Conducting Internal Audit
• Best Compliance Practices
