Pay Equity is "Comp"licated
When it comes to pay, federal enforcement efforts and proactive self-audits are just two pieces of the puzzle. Many states and cities are enacting new and varied laws to aggressively attack the "pay gap." This patchwork of differing and often contrasting requirements poses a growing challenge for employers – multi-state employers in particular. Employers must stay ahead of pay equity developments, develop a strategy for complying with the many new laws and design policies that achieve corporate consistency. Join us as we tie these developments together and chart the path ahead.
