Tools to Understand Equal Pay Laws, Analyze Your Policies, and Make Sure You’re Compliant

Get the Pay Equity Support You Need

Equal pay for equal work is the law, but with each state and regulator defining equal work differently, it can be difficult for employers to know if they are in compliance.

There have been a flurry of new pay equity bills enacted by states across the country over the past few years, and new pay equity laws are being proposed by state legislatures at an unprecedented rate.

This patchwork of laws presents a challenge to multi-state employers, as they all contain crucial differences in how they define what qualifies as similar work, and what can potentially justify a pay disparity.

I attended the harassment prevention workshop put on by Employers Council, and I wanted to share my praise for the presenter. I was skeptical about whether I would learn anything I didn't already know, but she presented the information in thought-provoking and nuanced ways. She answered questions well and had us do an activity that enlivened the presentation. As an academic, I particularly appreciated the way that she was able to address the issues intellectually and not simply give us an "information dump." Anyway, I was impressed with what I expected to be a boring presentation. - Professor, Regis University

Our handbook needed to be updated. We had done minor revisions over the years, but more policies than we needed crept into the handbook over time. I wanted to keep what was important and get rid of the rest. I sent my handbook to Employers Council and staff went through all of the policies to first let me know what could be eliminated, and what needed to change in order to bring it up to date. The best thing was that this is part of my full membership dues, so there was no charge for this. I send in my handbook every one or two years for a tune up, so it reflects current laws and stays streamlined.

As I faced some difficult employee problems over the years, I knew that I could reach out to Employers Council and get some good solid advice in how to handle a situation. In the 20 years if have been working in HR I don’t believe I was ever given bad advice. I may not have always agreed with what the counsel was, but I never put myself or the company in a compromising position by following your advice and recommendations.

Joe Maylin, Human Resources Manager - Utility Trailer Manufacturing Co.

Being able to reach out to someone on the Member Experience Team when something comes up and we're just not sure how to handle it is amazing. We have help just a phone call or an email away, and everyone that we have worked with has been so responsive, understanding, and helpful.
