Breaking Down Pay Equity Into Five Manageable Steps

The new law puts pressure on employers to not only understand the details of the law but also to take the necessary steps of analyzing teams and developing a compliance plan. Exposure under this law can be costly as double damages may be awarded to employees who are paid less than others.
