Oregon’s new pay equity law - arguably one of the strictest in the nation - came into full effect on January 1, and pay equity is top of mind for many employers and employees alike. This CLE will survey major features of the new law, compare and contrast it with laws recently adopted in other states (including Washington and California), and discuss unique compliance challenges and opportunities that the law presents for employers. The session will be led by two Portland-based attorneys who will share perspectives based on their experience litigating pay equity cases for plaintiffs and defendants, respectively: Laura Salerno Owens
of Markowitz Herbold PC and Kathryn G. Mantoan
of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP.
