the area of employee compensation has become highly charged the last few years and is considered a high- risk area for employers. New laws, regulations, and social media have changed how employers need to approach employee pay. Did you know in many states it is illegal to ask an applicant about pay history? Did you know that in many states you can no longer prohibit employees from discussing their pay with others or posting it on social media? Pay inequality between men and women has led to litigation and tarnished employers publicly. We conduct compensation studies that not only benchmark your current talent markets but identify areas of potential pay inequity.
