Agenda for Dollar for Dollar

  • Learn what the law says. Get a quick status on the federal laws that ban pay discrimination, and the most common parts of each law that employers break.
  • Learn about Congressional and White House proposals. For the first time in decades, Congress and the White House are on the same page when it comes to equal pay for equal work. Executive orders have already launched new employer pay mandates. And legislation is making it easier to prove pay inequity.
  • Create an audit blueprint. Map out exactly how you’ll conduct an audit for your workplace with the expert legal do’s and don’ts.
  • Turn your analysis into action. Figure out which key results you need to take corrective action on, and how to get board member/executive buy-in.
  • Implementing a fair pay policy. Learn the important legal factors you must consider in restructuring your pay policies, including merit and promotional pay increases.
  • Learn what not to do – like lowering pay to fix discovered disparities.
  • Maintaining equity. Understand what benchmarks and check-points to put in place to make sure your pay policies are equal and fair and stay that way.
