Celebrities, lawmakers, the government and plaintiffs’ attorneys are focused on closing the pay gap, but that’s easier said than done. As companies face unprecedented pressure to ensure employees are paid fairly, many are turning to proactive pay analyses to find and address pay gaps. The results, though, can be paralyzing. How do we move from analysis to action? More importantly, how do we ensure we’re not creating new discrimination? Quenton Wright and Scott Pechaitis, experts from different sides of the equal-pay field, provide their observations, insights and best practices for interpreting and acting on the results of the pay analysis.

Quenton helps clients address a wide variety of labor challenges, including proactive state, national, and global pay audits; OFCCP compliance; EEO investigations; monitoring per consent decree; pay gap analyses for public disclosure; and litigation.

Scott Pechaitis is an attorney in Jackson Lewis’ specialty Pay Equity Resource Group. Scott works closely with the firm’s in house statisticians, computer programmers and data analysts to investigate and defend employers in class/collective actions, EEOC investigations and OFCCP audits.
