Pay equity has moved to the forefront of regulatory, political, shareholder, employee, and public concern. Not only do enhanced equal pay laws continue to grow both in the U.S. and abroad, but employees and government agencies are bringing high stakes pay claims – exposing companies across all industries to public scrutiny and significant legal risk.
In light of these developments, the pressure on employers to ensure equitable pay for employees is at an all-time high. Learn more about current pay equity developments, and how Orrick’s Pay Equity Team can help mitigate legal risk, develop long-term pay equity and compliance strategies, and put in place best practices.
