Webinar: Preparing for Pay Equity Laws

Preparing for Pay Equity Laws

Multiple states have passed equal pay laws or have legislation pending and the Pay Equity for All Act of 2017 has been proposed to amend the Fair Labor Standards Act to make it unlawful for an employer to screen applicants based on their salary history or ask an applicant about their salary history.

Even if your company escapes having to comply with these new pay protection laws, the climate is shifting—requiring employers to be more diligent with their pay practices. This includes a wide range of considerations from how to negotiate new hire pay and benefits, how pay increases and bonuses are determined, to how pay policies and programs provide a framework for equitable pay practices.

This webinar will inform attendees on why pay equity is such a hot topic, where pay equity legislation is already in place, and where it may soon be in play. Attendees will also learn how this movement may impact their organization and what they can do to ensure they are operating in a manner that promotes equitable pay practices while lessening the risk of regulatory enforcement or employee litigation.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand what has contributed to enhanced regulatory activity related to pay equity
  • Learn about current and pending pay equity laws
  • Understand how your hiring pay practices may be affected
  • Identify areas that may need to be addressed to ensure equitable pay practices
