- Pay gap persists for women and minorities.
- Almost half of all workers report that they are prohibited from or discouraged from discussing their own compensation with colleagues.
- April 8, 2014 Executive Order prohibits the federal contracting community from discriminating or retaliating against employees for discussing their compensation. Proposed regulations on this issue are very broadly worded.
- OFCCP also issued proposed regulations that would require covered contractors to submit an Equal Pay Report annually, by establishment, with the following information: (1) the total number of workers within a specific EEO-1 job category by race, ethnicity and sex; (2) the aggregate W-2 wages in each EEO-1 job category, by race, ethnicity and sex; and (3) hours worked in each EEO-1 job category, by race, ethnicity and sex.
- The federal government’s intense focus on increasing pay transparency has potentially profound implications for all employers.
- New scheduling letter.
