April.27.2020

In this Business Insider article, partner Erin Connell and Of Counsel Katie Mantoan highlight the need for companies to remain vigilant about pay equity issues amid the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Erin and Katie, members of the firm’s labor and employment practice and leaders of our pay equity task force, provide guidance to business leaders to avoid future regulatory and litigation challenges related pay equity issues in their workforce.

The pandemic, they wrote, “presents an opportunity to differentiate themselves on an issue that is increasingly important to building a culture that attracts and retains the best talent. It’s also critical to avoid the ever-increasing legal risks of ignoring pay equity in an environment where regulators have gotten tougher with their enforcement actions and private litigation is on the rise.”
