Pay Transparency: How To Navigate New Trends Relating To Employee Pay And Salary Histories

Webinar: ID# 1026367
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Employers used to have near-total control over pay data and pay conversations. Those days are ending:
  • California A.B. 1209 (which has been sent to the governor’s desk for signature) would require employers of more than 500 employees in California to submit info on gender pay differentials to the state every two years; the info would then be made publicly available online.
  • Many cities and states have passed laws prohibiting questions about a job candidate’s salary history, with more enacting similar bans all the time.
  • Federal contractors may not retaliate against employees or applicants who ask about pay or disclose information about what they, or others, are making.
  • Social media discussions about pay, as well as pay-data websites (such as Glassdoor), make it easy for employees to find out salary information that used to be highly private.
There’s no fighting the pay-transparency tide, the only question is how you, as an employer, can ride it successfully (and without triggering a costly lawsuit).

Join us when a compensation expert and an employment attorney will discuss the challenges of forced transparency and related issues, and how you can transition to pay transparency while avoiding legal pitfalls.

You’ll learn:
  • What pay transparency is, what forced transparency means, and who’s affected by it
  • The latest trends and updates on pay transparency
  • The importance of pay program design, the new measures of pay equity in a transparent world, and how to set pay rates without knowing a candidate’s pay history
  • The benefits of a transparent compensation program and potential downsides to pay transparency
  • Laws that protect employees who discuss compensation and any limits on those protections
  • How to move from pay conversation confidentiality to openness if you’re considering the transition—and how to avoid legal issues and pitfalls in the process
  • How to turn negatives into positives, and communicate the transition effectively to employees
  • And much more!
