Speaker: Keely Collins – Lead Employment Counsel, Hall Benefits Law
After years of controversial legal and political battles, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) commenced its study of compensation data reported during the annual 2019 EEO1-filing. Because compensation data is reported by job category, race, sex and ethnicity, the compensation data study is expected to guide the EEOC’s approach to addressing claims of discriminatory pay. Although the study is not yet complete, human resources professionals may be guided by the data collection process and expected outcomes.
You will leave this session with the following key takeaways:
- Charting the legal pathway that the EEOC and advocacy organization took for the EEOC to conduct its study on compensation data, including the arguments made by the National Women’s Law Center and the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement.
- Key equal pay case studies before the EEOC to gain an understanding of how the EEOC views pay-based discrimination.
- Expected outcomes of the study on compensation data reported during the annual 2019 EEO-1 filing and any updates on the study that is currently in progress.
- Practical policy tips to prevent and manage equal pay liability.
