Fisher Phillips Unveils New Tool to Track Pay Equity Laws
Cheryl Behymer, Cheryl Pinarchick, and Kathleen Caminiti were quoted in the Akron Legal News article “Local Firm Unveils New Tool to Track Pay Equity Laws.” In 2016, before the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, Fisher Phillips launched its Pay Equity Practice Group. “Fisher Phillips has long positioned itself as an authority in this area of law,” said Kathleen. “When it became apparent that these issues were overlapping with other types of employment law, the firm launched the practice group to get ahead of potential litigation and assist clients in taking proactive steps.”
This February, the firm’s Pay Equity Practice Group unveiled the Pay Equity Interactive Map which details pay equity laws and legislation in each state.
“Each state is color coded based on the provisions that are in effect in that state,” said Cheryl Pinarchick. “The gray color indicates that the pay equity laws in the state address only pay disparities based on gender specific, while red means that the rules apply to gender plus other protected categories of employees.”
