WHAT EVERY BUSINESS NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE NEW OREGON EQUAL PAY ACT
The Oregon Equal Pay Act goes into effect 1/1/19 Are you 100% sure you’re ready?
This new law will have major impacts on virtually every business in Oregon but unfortunately, most businesses are not yet aware of it nor have they fully planned a strategy of how to deal with it.
Join us for this informative Virtual Online Workshop.
July 19th 1:00-1:30
While all employers agree with the merits of the concept of equal pay, anyone employing 2 or more will need to be certain they comply with this new laws provisions. Not only is it the law and the right thing to do but when the enforcement provisions kick into effect, employers in violation can be found liable for unpaid pages, liquidate damages, compensatory damages, punitive damages and attorney fees. In other words, if a business doesn’t comply with the Oregon Equal Pay Act, it can be an extremely costly mistake.
In the fast-paced 20-minute workshop you will learn:
1) an overview of the Oregon Equal Pay Law and the key potential impacts to your business
(For example, did you know that as of 10/9/17 you can NOT ask salary history questions of candidates?)
2) outline initial steps employers can do to prepare themselves – such as pay transparency, developing salary ranges/bands for all jobs and identifying what job-related criteria might affect placement in the bands
There will also be a 10-minute Q&A session where you can ask your specific questions of the expert.
