Greenberg Traurig, LLP, 77 West Wacker Drive, Suite 3100, Chicago, Illinois 60601.
For as long as the gender gap persists, pay equity will continue to be a hot button issue confronting every industry with employees. Whether to stay ahead of legal and regulatory developments or simply because it is a good business decision, it is wise to undertake internal self-audits of pay equity. As with any initiative governed by law and regulation, however, doing pay equity audits the wrong way can do far more harm than good. This program will cover how to properly and strategically perform a pay equity self-audit under the attorney-client privilege, common legal and regulatory issues to navigate, pitfalls to avoid, and many of the practical considerations in how to go about coordinating the effort internally.
