#WorkTrends Preview: Legislation of Pay Equity

As a provider of employment screening services, HireRight has worked for years to refine the process of accumulating the information employers need to make effective hiring decisions while still respecting the needs of candidates.

One area that affects the employee screening process directly is pay equity. According to the U.S. Census, the median annual pay for a woman who holds a full-time job year-round is $40,742, while the median annual pay for a man who holds a full-time, year-round job is $51,212. If an employer bases compensation on salary history, a woman may find herself chronically underpaid.

It’s safe to say 2018 will be a year characterized by change. HireRight, which has been a leader in the effort to remove salary history from screening tools, is perfectly positioned to help us figure it all out.

This #WorkTrends chat will give an overview of pay equity legislation and how it has the potential to help bring parity to our nation’s salary picture. We will touch on the information in the HireRight Pay Equity Legislation eBook and learn how pay equity changes affect the interview process too.

Join #WorkTrends host Meghan M. Biro and her guests, HireRight Chief Human Resources Officer Dawn Hirsch and Associate Counsel for Compliance Alonzo Martinez on Wednesday, November 15, 2017, at 1 pm ET as they discuss advances in pay equity and how laws are evolving in this area.
