Equal Pay Is Here to Stay: Keeping Ahead of the Pay Equity Curve

1.25 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: Critical Evaluation, Business Acumen | Intended Audience: Midlevel
Workplace Application:
This session will explore the increased focus by the public and the government on pay equity and provide best practices for employers. 

Gender pay discrimination has been prohibited by federal and many state laws for decades. A renewed focus by the public and the government on pay bias, the increase in regulatory requirements, and the reemergence of pay discrimination class actions means that you must examine your pay practices to identify any unjustified pay disparities and ensure they are using best practices in connection with pay decisions. This session will provide practical guidance for identifying potential pay disparities, determining whether there are legitimate explanations for those disparities, correcting risk areas, and protecting the company in pay discrimination claims. You will learn about:

  • Recent legislation, regulation, and corporate initiatives focused on identifying and correcting pay disparities in the workplace.  
  • The key factors that contribute to your risk of facing a pay discrimination claim. 
  • Proactive measures you can utilize to prevent and defend pay discrimination claims.
