Pay Equity Audits and Defense Strategies in Litigation

Program Number: 3088

Program Date: 04/22/2020


This program will address two facets of one of the most pressing issues in the workplace today: pay equity among males and females. This program will provide an overview of the issue and current legal landscape, it will discuss how to effectively perform a pay equity audit to allow employers to identify any pay equity issues among their workforce, and it will address the theories of liability that an employer must be prepared to defend against in pay equity litigation.

**Note from Presenter Brian Murphy

I am pleased to announce that two colleagues and I co-authored the Employer’s Guide to COVID-19 and Emerging Workplace Issues, published today and available through Castle Publications (https://castlepublications.com/). This is a critical, timely, and useful resource that, over the course of 14 Chapters and nearly 500 pages, covers every conceivable intersection between COVID-19 and federal, California, and NY employment laws. The Guide was designed to offer employers one-stop-shopping and to avoid the hodge-podge of information available through webinars and blog-postings, each focusing on discrete matters.

Importantly, the Guide is available in electronic format only, as it is my intent that this will be regularly updated to reflect the new and changing legal obligations employers will face as we navigate this crisis and emerge on the other side. We devote significant attention to the “second generation” of issues employers will face in resuming operations, returning employees to work, and adjusting to the “new normal” that will exist in all workplaces.
