Fisher Phillips Launches Interactive Pay Equity Map
ATLANTA (February 22, 2018) – In response to the recent avalanche of pay equity legislation and the challenges facing employers working to understand and comply with a patchwork quilt of equal pay laws, Fisher Phillips announced today the launch of the “Pay Equity Interactive Map,” a web-based tool. The map allows visitors to explore the pay equity laws of states and major cities by simply clicking on each state on the map.
The firm’s Pay Equity Practice Group developed the map as part of the firm’s commitment to keep employers informed of developments in the evolving area of pay equality. “A number of states have already enacted robust pay equality statutes, and we expect more legislation on the horizon,” said Kathleen Caminiti, co-chair of the Pay Equity Practice Group and a partner in the firm’s New Jersey Office. “Given the ever-changing legal landscape, we wanted to provide a place for companies and their counsel to readily access the relevant pay equity laws.” Kathleen explained that “the Pay Equity Interactive Map is a user-friendly tool to assist our clients and businesses who visit our website, but it is not a substitute for legal counsel because the laws are very nuanced.”
Fisher Phillips provides significant employer resources in the burgeoning area of pay equity law and litigation. The Fisher Phillips blog, Pay Equity Matters: Mind the Gap, provides regular updates regarding developments impacting all aspects of equal pay law, legislation and litigation.
