    The IPAC Student/Early Career Learning Series presents Current Topics in Pay Equity, facilitated by Lisa Harpe, Ph.D.

    The last few years have seen a dramatic increase in the scrutiny of employers’ pay practices. As more states codify their own pay equity regulations and as employers face inquiries from shareholders, the public and their own employees, employers are taking an in depth look at the fairness of their compensation systems. Dr. Harpe will provide an overview of pay equity: what it is and how it is evaluated. Dr. Harpe will provide an overview of the legal and analytic framework for evaluating pay equity, including the differences between a wage gap and pay equity study and the different considerations when conducting a pay equity study in a proactive as opposed to reactive manner (e.g., after a legal inquiry or lawsuit).

    This is a FREE event for both IPAC members and non-members, so register today!

    Contact with questions.

    We hope that you will join us!
