There has been a monumental shift in the equal pay landscape, with pay equity legislation continuing to spread across the country and administrative agencies and plaintiffs’ attorneys aggressively pursuing pay equity claims. Although federal contractors have faced OFCCP audits of their compensation practices for decades, OFCCP has become increasingly more sophisticated in its approach to uncovering pay discrimination, recently notching a number of high-profile settlements of gender and racial pay discrimination claims. It is more important than ever that federal contractors proactively understand and evaluate their pay practices in order to defend them in OFCCP audits and beyond.

On Wednesday, October 3, 2018, join Morrison & Foerster’s Andrew Turnbull and Welch Consulting’s G. Edward (Ted) Anderson for a practical program designed to provide employers with a better understanding of how to prepare for and defend OFCCP pay equity audits. Topics we will cover include:

  • An overview of the legal and statistical concepts underlying compensation discrimination;
  • Insight into OFCCP’s current trends and processes for auditing compensation practices;
  • Practical steps for conducting privileged, proactive pay equity analysis, including using labor economists to construct proper statistical analysis and defenses;
  • Understanding how to review pay equity in light of the ever increasing multitude of pay equity laws; and
  • Proactive steps for defending pay equity issues in OFCCP audits.
