For Federal contractors and employers alike, pay equity, and the monitoring of it, is an important company issue. Additionally, the wage gap that exists between men and women (as well as different racial and ethnic groups) is certainly a political hot button issue. This training will provide a legal context for pay equity, as well as some of the different methods for analyzing pay data to identify disparities. We will also provide some recommendations and considerations for conducting pay analyses and, if necessary, making salary adjustments.
