Pay equity presents one of the fastest moving issues in the employment law landscape. Politicians have added the “Pay Gap” to their arsenal of campaign buzz words. The EEOC has proposed a major revision to the Employer Information Report requiring all employers with more than 100 employees to annually submit compensation data to the EEOC beginning in 2017.  State legislatures are busy cranking out new and more stringent pay equity laws. The plaintiffs’ employment bar and state Attorneys’ General are taking steps to expand the scope of existing laws.   

Employers that stay ahead of this trend will be in the best position to avoid litigation and enforcement actions. 

Seyfarth’s Pay Equity Group is on top of these issues.  Please join members of Seyfarth's PEG for a practical discussion on the pay equity landscape that will cover:

  • Recently passed and pending legislation that expands employers’ obligations regarding equal pay for equal (or comparable) work
  • The EEOC's proposed EEO-1 report
  • Best practices for conducting a pay equity audit and avoiding pay equity claims
