HR Hot Topic: Pay Equity
The Equal Pay Act was passed in 1963, yet a 2020 report by hired.com found that 63 percent of men receive higher salaries than women performing the same job. In this course, you will explore the importance of developing workplace policies that address unfair gaps in employee pay.
