This “CLE in the City” program examines contributors to the gender and racial wage gaps, including pay discrimination, occupational segregation, and implicit bias. Panelists address trends in equal pay-related litigation, including the distinction between claims brought under anti-discrimination laws versus equal pay laws; the extent to which employers can rely on prior salary to justify pay disparities under federal or state equal pay laws; and the particular issues that arise in equal pay cases within the legal profession. The panel also covers trends in legislation, including pay data collection; pay transparency requirements; limits on employer inquiries and reliance on prior salary; and narrowing employer defenses, among others. Finally, the program examines proactive measures taken by companies to uncover and rectify pay disparities and promote gender and racial equity.
Please note: only those who attended the program in-person are eligible to receive CLE credit.
