Equal Work, Equal Pay: The Latest Developments

Date: 03/07/2024

Time: 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST

States across the country continue to adopt a range of regulations targeted at pay inequities in the workplace. While laws requiring equal pay for men and women and prohibiting discrimination have been on the books for decades, in recent years, lawmakers have enacted requirements related to pay transparency, wage disclosure, and wages for contingent/temporary workforces.

In this session, our labor and employment law experts will review:

  • The current landscape for employers seeking to comply with the ever-changing requirements and aiming to adopt best practices.
  • The latest developments for the Illinois Day and Temporary Labor Services Act, which requires labor-service providers to pay wages and provide benefits to employees assigned to a third-party client that are determined by the third-party client’s practices for its own employees.
