Laura Corvo and Jeff Stewart will cover key topics that are anticipated to be at the forefront of employment law issues not only this year, but for years to come.

With an increase in government enforcement actions and state legislation focusing on pay transparency, it’s more important than ever for employers to sharpen their focus on pay equity. By understanding the current legal requirements and taking proactive measures to achieve pay equity, employers can create a fairer, more desirable workplace and potentially mitigate claims for pay equity related violations.
