Recent studies have shown that women earn approximately 78 cents for every dollar that a man makes. Women are also under-represented in the best paying jobs. These studies’ conclusions have caused federal agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs to prioritize pay issues.While the studies focused significantly on women’s pay vs. men’s pay, the potential audits from these agencies consider all protected classes.
Pay or compensation discrimination occurs when employees performing similar work do not receive similar pay. Pay discrimination based on an employee’s membership in a protected category like race, disability, or sex, is prohibited by anti-discrimination laws. Relevant laws include Title VII, the ADA and ADEA, state anti-discrimination laws, and the Equal Pay Act which specifically addresses pay discrimination based on sex.

Why You Should Attend:
Combating pay discrimination issues has long been the goal of the EEOC and the OFCCP. In its recent strategic plan, the EEOC considers pay discrimination issues to be of top priority. The EEOC revised the EEO-1 form to gather pay data for this purpose. While the form was nixed, it is now back in play. What you tell the EEOC can mean an audit from the EEOC or the OFCCP. It is vital to perform your own pay analysis so you won’t be caught with large back pay awards. We will discuss laws that affect pay and how to perform a pay analysis.
Who Should Attend:
- Human resource professionals,
