Addressing Pay Inequity: A Review of the New York Achieve Pay Equity Act


Created on October 10, 2017




From the Golden Gate to the Big Apple, in Governor's mansions, legislatures, courtrooms and boardrooms, pay equity is a hot topic in employment law. Several states have proposed, or enacted, legislation aimed at greatly expanding the Federal Equal Pay Act (EPA). Key among them is New York, where the Achieve Pay Equity Act has been the law of the land for a little more than a year.

This program, presented by Fisher Phillips attorneys Kathleen Caminiti and Sarah Wieselthier will review the EPA and other state and city developments, with focused attention on the significant aspects of New York's pay equity law, the New York Achieve Pay Equity Act (APEA).
