Brian Simmons, SHRM-SCP, PHR

Senior Human Resources Advisor, CMI


Wednesday, April 25th, 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

In light of recent court decisions and “voluntary” settlement agreements, discriminatory pay practices in violation of the Equal Pay Act continue to exist. However, many organizations have mistakenly overlooked red flags and prime indicators of problems within their compensation and benefits structures. Multi-million dollar settlement and penalty amounts are being made public by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) highlighting the serious nature of pay and total compensation differences based on gender differences or prior salary information. Find out who just settled their lawsuit for $2.5 million and who settled theirs for $45 million! Learn what you need to be looking for – NOW.
