With renewed attention on inequity in pay by gender and the passing of fair pay legislation in California, Maryland, Massachusetts, and New York, Industrial/Organizational Psychologists are increasingly being called upon to help private and public sector organizations conduct compensation audits and ensure pay equity. Working in collaboration with attorneys and compensation experts, we bring a unique perspective on how to help organizations determine whether they have gender or ethnic group differences in pay after job-related factors are taken into consideration. I/O’s bring expertise in job analysis, which provides a more objective method for grouping jobs as required by law, and in conducting statistical analyses and drawing conclusions from those analyses, which informs organizational decision-making.
In this presentation, David Pollack will describe the challenges organizations are facing, review the implications of recently-passed fair pay legislation, and outline a process that Industrial/Organizational Psychologists can follow when conducting pay audits and helping organizations remedy pay differences that may exist.
