Equal Pay: Passing Fad or Serious Exposure? 


Equal Pay: Passing Fad or Serious Exposure? – This session will examine California’s new equal pay law and how it differs from former state law and from federal law. It will also examine the EEOC’s proposal to require larger employers to gender-based submit pay information every year. The program will include some practical applications of the new law as well as strategies for conducting an audit of pay practices to find any pay disparities based on gender.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn what is required of employers under the new California equal pay law.
  2. Learn what the EEOC is proposing to require of employers in terms of gender-based reporting of pay.
  3. Learn how to conduct an audit of pay practices to determine whether exposure to equal pay lawsuits exists.
