The Oregon Equal Pay Act of 2017: Understanding Inequity, Complying with the Law, and Taking the Lead on Change
11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Sunriver Resort, Sunriver, Oregon
Markowitz Herbold attorney Laura Salerno Owens and Portland State University Sociologist Maura Kelly, will discuss the Oregon Equal Pay Act of 2017 and approaches to complying with its requirements, as well as the cultural, psychological, and sociological factors that contribute to historically lower salaries for women, minorities, and other groups.
Attendees will learn not only how to best advise their clients – and themselves as employers – on this important issue, but also how they can take a leadership role within their own offices and communities to close the pay gap.
