Analyzing Compensation for Equity and Risk

Concerned about pay equity and pay discrimination risks under federal, state, and local laws, or outside stakeholder/shareholder pressure?

In this highly interactive day-and-a-half course, you’ll get hands-on experience formulating strategies to analyze and respond to a case study involving real world compensation challenges. Our legal and analytics experts will guide you through the life cycle of a compensation investigation and analysis – from initial employee complaints, EEOC charges, and self-critical compensation analyses, to class-action lawsuits and shareholder initiatives.  Dive into sample datasets and scenarios to identify, assess, and mitigate the pay discrimination and pay equity risks.

You will learn how to design and execute effective self-critical compensation analyses under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the federal Equal Pay Act, and the rules and regulations enforced by the Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP).  You also will learn the important legal and statistical principles that the EEOC, OFCCP, and federal courts follow in individual and systemic pay discrimination cases, as well as practical strategies and tactics for defending against compensation-related investigations, audits, and lawsuits. The course will feature an interactive discussion on how to evaluate your company’s gender pay gap, as well as a review of the latest developments in state and local equal pay and salary history legislation, and the impact these new laws will have on private sector compensation practices.
