As pay equity and equal pay have become hot topics, pay discrimination claims are on the rise. And the momentum continues to grow—quickly. More than a dozen states and several major cities have passed new, aggressive equal pay laws designed to make it easier for employees to bring (and win) pay discrimination claims while for federal contractors pay discrimination has become OFCCP’s major focus.

This growing “patchwork” of federal, state, and local laws poses particularly worrisome challenges for all employers but especially for multistate employers. For instance, how can multistate organizations comply with different and often contrasting laws from state to state? How can organizations proactively address pay equity issues before being targeted for internal complaints, EEOC charges, OFCCP investigations, and the growing wave of private litigation?

Also, how can an organization find and fix the unexplained disparities that lurk within its pay systems? And, can an organization do this all “under privilege” so it doesn’t have to turn over its efforts in discovery in response to demands from increasingly savvy plaintiffs’ counsels and enforcement agencies?

Join us on March 26 when Attorneys Nita Beecher and Consuela Pinto of Fortney Scott will deliver an in-depth webinar outlining how to take a proactive and strategic approach when addressing the growing pay equity challenges your organization faces.

After attending this webinar you’ll be able to:

  • Identify how the growing patchwork of new state and big-city equal pay laws mean for your organization and how to respond
  • Take advantage of the “safe harbors” under many new state equal pay laws to protect your organization from claims and liability
  • Conduct a self-audit of your pay system to find and fix unexplained disparities
  • And much more!
