The Obama administration has long sought to close the gender “pay gap” noting that women on average make 79 cents on the dollar compared to men.  The Administration has pushed this agenda down to the federal agencies, which have made pay discrimination among their top enforcement priorities. In a new development with sweeping implications for employers with 100 or more employees, the EEOC has now proposed requiring those employers to annually provide detailed compensation information for all employees on EEO-1 reports beginning in September 2017. The EEOC will share this data with OFCCP to determine what companies to investigate for pay discrimination.  In addition, several states have implemented, or are in the process of proposing, state laws on pay equity, such as the California Fair Pay Act, to make it easier for employees to bring and win pay discrimination claims.  And, despite the 79 cents national average, several employers have issued press releases they pay their employees equally, which has put pressure on other employers to be able to make these same statements and further heightened employee awareness of the pay equity issue.   

Practically speaking, pay discrimination has become much more “comp”licated.  Join us in this session as we uncomplicate pay equity…  After this session, employers will better understand the pay discrimination landscape and how they can proactively run privileged pay analyses, what to consider in making pay decisions going forward, and how to defend themselves in EEOC and OFCCP investigations, and in litigation.
