#NEHRA2017 Conference Encore Session:
Massachusetts Pay Equity Act Panel

Did you miss this sell-out session at NEHRA's 2017 Conference? Join us on 10/31 in Waltham for an informative and interactive panel centered on the MA Pay Equity Act!

The MA Pay Equity Act goes into effect on July 1, 2018. It may seem like you have plenty of time to push this to the back of your desk, but actually, there is a lot of work you can and should do now in anticipation of that effective date.

This panel will cover the following issues:

  • Questions employers can and cannot ask in the hiring process as to pay history and verification
  • Assessing comparable work across functional areas
  • The limited scenarios in which variations in wages are acceptable
  • Steps employers can take now to protect an organization once the law takes effect
  • The role of Human Resources, compensation specialists, and managers in communicating about compensation and avoiding retaliation under the law
