Equal Pay Laws: What To Expect
|Date / Time:
||4/27/2017 / 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EST
Many employers are under the false impression that pay equity risks were a creature of the Obama Administration. While the dreaded EEO-1 reporting of compensation by gender, race and ethnicity is likely derailed for the time being, pay equity risk is very real in 2017.
Practitioners don't expect the issue to be abandoned at the federal level and at least eight states have enacted legislation that increases the pool of plaintiffs compared to Title VII and the Equal Pay Act (‘EPA') and limits the scope of exceptions.
This webinar helps Legal and Human Relations personnel responsible for EEO compliance, anti-discrimination programs or managing compensation processes to understand the definition of a gender pay gap, learn about legally defensible (and indefensible) bases for pay differentials, and how to identify pay gaps. It will also address the process of setting up a pay equity study, including attorney client privilege concerns, and cover evolving issues including the use of prior salary history.

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
