    Heightened enforcement agendas surrounding fair pay means organizations are under more scrutiny than ever to monitor and promote pay equity in their workforce.  This informative workshop examines the impact of federal and state fair pay legislation and compensation data reporting requirements on employers, the key components of a proactive analysis of compensation data, the steps to take to correct inequities and overcome pay equity challenges, and how to integrate pay analysis into annual HR agendas.

    As a result of this program participants will:

    1. Know how recent fair pay legislation impacts their organization

    2. How to proactively identify and address pay inequity
