    Catharine Morisset

    Litigation Partner, Fisher Phillips 

    Pay equity issues remain ripe for individual lawsuits and collective actions. Many states have enacted legislation greatly expanding employers’ obligations and broadening the protected classes from those under the federal Equal Pay Act and adding additional compliance mandates – including Washington.  Beginning January 1, 2023, many Washington employers will be required to disclose the salary range and benefits in their external and internal job postings. This presentation will review new legal obligations, developing best practices, needed manager training, and some practical tips for putting all of the above into practice.

    Learning Objectives

    • Overview of Washington pay equity laws
    • January 2023 requirements
    • Best practices for audits and avoiding pay equity claims
    • Develop checklist for your organization
