Course Description

The Equal Pay Act was passed in 1963, yet a 2020 report by hired.com found that 63 percent of men receive higher salaries than women performing the same job. In this course, you will explore the importance of developing workplace policies that address unfair gaps in employee pay. You will learn about tools that can help inform those policies—like survey and pay audits—and best practices for their implementation. This course presents federal and state legislation on pay equity, and it provides an opportunity for you to explore your state's laws and how they impact your workplace.
