Pay transparency laws (laws requiring employers to disclose compensation ranges to applicants) are spreading like wildfire across the US. Regulators are hoping such laws eliminate pay differentials based on gender or race. Putting good intentions aside, the laws are a source of huge consternation for businesses as the state and local requirements vary greatly in terms of what must be disclosed to whom and at what point in the hiring process.
In this Quick Chat video, our Labor and Employment lawyers discuss key developments in New York City, California, Colorado, Washington and several other jurisdictions. Liz, Paul and Di are all in the weeds helping multistate and multinational businesses develop consistent and compliant compensation plans and recruitment policies, and they share their advice here.
Speakers: Elizabeth Ebersole, Paul Evans and Dionna Shear.
We regularly assist with large-scale pay equity audits to help companies look under the hood and assess whether there are any unexplained or unjustified pay gaps. For more information on how we can help, please contact your Baker McKenzie lawyer.
