Program Summary

Persistent pay inequity has driven a growing trend across the country for greater wage transparency during the hiring process. Legislatures have helped fuel the trend by passing laws that forbid employers from inquiring about salary history, impose new pay equity standards, and require employers to disclose the wage range of posted roles as part of their hiring process. This webinar discusses the current legal landscape of responses to pay inequity and wage transparency across the country, including the variations across jurisdictions. The program also provides a brief overview of what has fueled the trend to require employers disclose salary range information and what can be expected in wage transparency bills in the future.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • The problem of pay inequity and an overview of the range of state legislative responses
  • The new wage transparency laws, from California to Connecticut, Colorado to New York City
  • Employer-driven initiatives toward greater wage transparency, and reconciling theory and reality when implementing affirmative measures to combat pay inequity
