1.5 Credits
Course Description:
It is undeniable that there is a pay gap relative to gender, race and ethnicity. Debating how large the gap is misses the point: inequity is just that and carries with it legal, business and ethical considerations.

This webinar provides an overview of the legal landscape with a particular emphasis on the key variables that differ. It also will focus on systemic guardrails to mitigate the risk of pay inequity. Finally, it will focus on the deceptively-complex issue of pay equity audits with promising practices to maximize the benefits of such audits and minimize the risks.

What is the legal landscape we will explore?

In addition to legal protections applicants and employees have under the Equal Pay Act and other federal, state and local non-discrimination and/or equal pay laws, an increasing number of states have or are considering more robust pay equity laws that make it easier for an employee to prove pay inequity. States with laws include, for example, California, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Maryland, New Jersey and Massachusetts. Illinois and New York are among those states where robust pay equity legislation is likely on the horizon. But these laws and bills laws, are far from uniform; there are many variables that employers must navigate.

There also are many variables in state and local salary ban laws, existing or proposed. Such laws exist, for example, in the following states (California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maine, Oregon and Vermont) and cities (Albany, New York, Cincinnati, New Orleans (city contractors), New York City, Philadelphia (on partial hold pending appeal), Puerto Rico, San Francisco, Suffolk County, New York, and Westchester County, New York.) Keep your eyes on New Jersey and New York.
