Understanding Pay Equity, Discrimination and Reporting Requirements

The Equal Pay Act made pay discrimination illegal over 50 years ago. Yet statistics show a persistent gap between men’s and women’s earnings. While this isn’t exactly breaking news, what is new is that both the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs are stepping up their game and focusing on pay disparities as a form of employment discrimination. The new EEO-1 reporting rules took effect recently. But the reporting rules are only the tip of the iceberg. Both agencies will use the information reported to determine how best to focus their efforts in fighting pay discrimination. Now is the time for employers to get ahead of the EEOC/OFCCP’s new ‘hot button’ priority and avert pay discrimination claims.

Why You Should Attend:

The pay gap and pay discrimination will come to matter increasingly to employers – if for no other reason than the EEOC and the OFCCP’s new focus on this issue will make sure it does. If your employment practices, including your hiring, promotion, and compensation policies and procedures do not reflect this then your efforts at ensuring a discrimination-free workplace are at best incomplete-and you will be vulnerable to discrimination claims and liability on yet another front. The good news is you don’t have to be. In this webinar you will get an introduction to the issues and the steps you need to take to get you headed in the right direction.
