EEOC's Plan Requiring Additional Pay Data is a "Dramatic Step," Martucci Says

Shook, Hardy & Bacon Partner Bill Martucci joined a Law360 panel of attorneys commenting on the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's plans to require employers with more than 100 workers to provide more pay data in an effort to uncover potential pay discrimination.

"Employers should review their pay practices and policies under the guidance of counsel and make appropriate changes if necessary. This continuing focus on pay equity is a major issue today and tomorrow for American corporations," Martucci told Law360. "EEOC Chairman Jenny Yang is committed to equality and parity in pay. Under her leadership, these efforts will be significant. The time to act is now."
