)-- Edupliance announces webinar titled, “The EEOC and OFCCP’s Intended Use of EEO-1 Data: New Reporting Requirements and Pay Discrimination Issues” that aims to update attendees on the significant changes the EEOC recently made to the EEO-1 survey, its impact on businesses, and what can be done now to prepare. The event goes Live on Thursday, August 24, from 01:00 PM to 02:30 PM, Eastern Time.
Despite the passage of the Equal Pay Act in 1963, women still lag significantly behind in pay. While many may say the discrepancy is caused by lifestyle choices, it appears that pay discrimination is still an ongoing concern. Unfortunately, pay issues are difficult to investigate due to a lack of information. For this reason, the EEOC and the OFCCP have been looking for ways to get more pay information such as to address the continued discrepancy in pay. One of the ways is the use of a new EEO-1 form where employers will report not only traditional demographic data but also pay information. The new rule would require employers and contractors with at least 100 employees to accurately track and report on the number of hours employees work, identify their employees’ earnings using W-2 wage data over a 12-month period and classify employees in one of 12 pay bands in an effort to highlight and eliminate pay disparities. Are you prepared?
The 90-minute webinar will be conducted by Susan Desmond, an expert with over 30 years of representing management in all areas of labor and employment law. She is a principal with Jackson Lewis PC. A frequent author and speaker, Ms. Desmond is listed in Best Lawyers in America and has been named by Chambers USA as one of America’s leading business lawyers for labor and employment law.
