Pay Equity: What Employers Need to Know

Pay Equity: What Employers Need to Know

The push for pay equity has been gaining steam and shows no signs of slowing down. The entire country is subject to the federal Equal Pay Act. This Act became more aggressive in 2018 due to a court ruling, and now, several states have enhanced their equal pay acts in the past few years, with many more considering such legislation in the future. Additionally, numerous states and localities have created salary history inquiry bans and created additional protections for employees who want to discuss their wages. Even in states that don’t pass many separate employment laws, the publicity around this topic is likely to lead to more federal claims. Join us to discuss these laws in-depth and learn what steps you can take toward compliance.
