EEOC Tweaks Data-Collection Rule, But Companies' Concerns Linger
The article, “EEOC Tweaks Data-Collection Rule, But Companies' Concerns Linger,” featured in Corporate Counsel, highlighted lawyers’ rising concerns - both old and new—about the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's proposed enhanced collection of employee salary data even as the agency moves to try to alleviate some of the burdens on employers.
