Earlier this year, pay equity became a hot topic in several countries like the U.S., U.K. and Iceland where new laws impacting gender pay equity went into effect. At the same time, more and more U.S. states and localities are increasing efforts to facilitate pay equity in the workplace. States like California, Oregon, Massachusetts, and cities like San Francisco and New York City have enacted laws that prohibit employers from asking, directly and indirectly, regarding an applicant's salary history. Following these developments, it is critical for employers to review their pay practices and understand potential consequences of non-compliance with U.S. pay equity laws.
In a Live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will discuss the latest developments related to pay equity and its impact to the labor and employment landscape. Speakers will also offer best practices in complying with pay equity laws and minimizing legal exposure.
Key topics include:
§ The Gender Pay Gap in the U.S.
§ Current and Proposed U.S. Pay Equity Legislation
§ Root Causes of Pay Equity Issues
§ Practical Implications for Employers
§ Pay Equity Best Practices
