Learn all issues impacting the gender pay gap and how the Equal Pay Act (EPA) affects your organization.

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 topic 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.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to discuss the concepts of substantially similar work, defensible reasons for pay disparity.
  • You will be able to recognize the risks associated with making compensation decisions based on prior salary history.
  • You will be able to explain the basics of conducting a pay equity study and how to identify high risk areas in your organization.
  • You will be able to review your organization's records retention requirements, job applications and policy updates and best practices to avoid litigation.
