Topic: California Compensation Compliance: Don’t Let Your Pay Practices Earn a Lawsuit
California’s Fair Pay Act imposes some of the strictest standards in the nation for pay equity, salary history inquires, mandatory pay scales and reliance on prior salary in compensation decisions. Companies with even one California employee need to make sure their pay practices won’t subject them to an expensive lawsuit. This webinar will provide employers with the information they need to support compliance with the California Fair Pay Act.

Topic: Salary History Bans in Connection with Pay Equity Requirements
Asking “What’s your current salary?” has been part and parcel of the hiring process for as long as employers have been hiring employees. Today, however, several states have passed laws banning or restricting salary history questions during the hiring process. The logic behind the ban is that pay discrimination can follow employees from job to job throughout their careers, which can result in a systemic reduction in their earning power. This webinar will review existing salary history bans to help employers comply with this evolving area of the law and eliminate confusion as to what employers can and cannot ask when it comes to compensation.
Presented by: Jeff Fritz and Monica Snyder

Topic: New York City’s Salary History Ban – Are You in Compliance?
On October 31, 2017 employers in New York City became banned from asking job applicants about their salary history. The new law is part of a broader trend across the country and is designed as a measure to address gender-based wage gaps. Organizations doing business in the City must act quickly to come into compliance with the new law, or face the potential for costly repercussions. This webinar will discuss the prohibitions under the new law and outline several key steps that employers can – and should – take right away to make sure your company complies with the law.
