Laws requiring men and women to receive equal pay for equal work have been on the books since 1870. Nevertheless, on average, women currently earn 80 cents to every dollar a man earns. How can that be? This webinar reviews the history of the law of equal pay, the current state of the law, and the application of that law to your workforce. Learning objectives include an overview of the laws impacting equal pay, understanding the exceptions to the rules that provide an employer's defenses to paying women less than men and increasing your familiarity with the legal proceedings to which an employer may be subjected if men and women are paid inequitably.
