Pamela M. Ploor quoted in article “Attys React To EEOC’s Equal Pay Data Reporting Proposal”

Law 360

Below is an excerpt:

"The proposal will allow EEOC and OFCCP to create industry-specific and geographically specific compensation information to target outlier companies for investigation and/or audit. Because the EEO-1 report will list employee information by establishment, the report raises confidentiality concerns. An employee's pay may be figured out based on his or her pay band if he or she is the only employee in a pay band at the location or is otherwise identifiable by race or sex. The proposal adds to the regulatory burden on employers and raises questions about what OFCCP will do, if anything, on its proposed compensation report."
