FMN - 2020/June, Seg.4 - Pay Equity: The Tale of Two Genders - Part II

Course Overview
On January 29, 2009, President Obama signed the first piece of legislation of his Administration: the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 (“Act”). The Act states the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) longstanding position that each paycheck that contains discriminatory compensation is a separate violation regardless of when the discrimination began. Given pay equity legislation is progressing rapidly, more and more companies are performing pay equity studies. Wells Miller, Counsel, Executive Compensation & Employee Benefits Group at Choate, Hall & Stewart and Josh Sch'ffer, Director, Valuation Practice Leader at EquityMethods, give us their insights.

  • Identify the actions companies need to take based on recent legislation,
  • Recognize the best ways to address pay equity issues,
