This 90-minute training on managing discrimination litigation risks will provide a comprehensive primer on reviewing compensation systems for internal equity and discuss why, in light of recent legal and regulatory changes, employers should be performing compensation reviews.

Why Should You Attend:

The last two years have brought major changes in the legal and regulatory environment regarding compensation discrimination, and there are even more changes on the horizon. These changes encompass both individual claims and claims of systemic discrimination, and affect the policies and procedures employers need to have in place to combat discrimination.

The compensation review is a valuable tool in the employer's risk management arsenal, yet few organizations put this tool to use. In light of the new regulatory environment, and the additional changes coming in the next 12 to 24 months, employers can no longer afford to ignore this important tool.
