FMN - 2020/May, Seg.2 - Pay Equity: The Tale of Two Genders - Part I

Course Overview
Discrimination, racism, inequality...big words with an even bigger meaning, words that even in the year 2020 impact our lives, one way or another. A term that's often on the sidelines is pay equity. The Equal Pay Act (EPA) of 1963 prohibits sex-based wage discrimination between men and women in the same establishment who perform jobs that require substantially equal skill, effort and responsibility under similar working conditions. Wells Miller, Counsel, Executive Compensation & Employee Benefits at Choate, Hall & Stewart and Josh Sch'ffer, Director, Valuation Practice Leader at EquityMethods, discuss inequities in pay between genders and its implications for organizations.
