Description:

Estee Lauder is in the hot seat with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) for its paid parental leave policy. In a newly filed lawsuit, the EEOC alleges that the cosmetics giant automatically provided male workers who just became fathers with lesser parental leave benefits than female employees who had just become new moms.

Estee Lauder probably thought it was doing the right thing by adopting a parental leave policy so new parents could bond with their children, by offering flexible return-to-work benefits after baby-bonding leave had expired. But, the policy raised eyebrows at the EEOC for how it was implemented. The EEOC reported that new mothers were entitled to an additional six weeks of paid leave for additional time off whereas new fathers only got two weeks of additional paid time off.

The case has thrust the issue of sex discrimination back into the national spotlight and serves as an important reminder that you must ensure that leave policies and corresponding pay practices don’t discriminate against employees on the basis of sex, a clear violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

But, how can you ensure your policies and practices don’t spark Title VII liability on the basis of sex? Join us when our presenter, a skilled employment attorney, will walk you through the many, and some potentially surprising, ways sex discrimination claims may arise as a result of your leave, pay, or other policies.

You’ll learn:

  • Do’s and don’ts for drafting and enforcing paid and unpaid leave policies for baby bonding or other family-based commitments
  • How to spot “red flags” concerning equal pay for equal or comparable work
  • Case law examples illustrating when employers have goofed by enacting and enforcing pay and benefits policies that inherently discriminated against members of the workforce on the basis of sex
  • And more!

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

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.

The live 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.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
