In October 2017, the first changes to Oregon’s Equal Pay law, prohibiting employers from seeking pay history of job applicants or employees. The law changed again in January 2019, resulting in the need for analysis of each organization’s total compensation. We offer a variety of products for any of your Pay Equity needs. Our highly experienced consultants can consult with your organization regarding your specific needs and how to reach compliance. Our Pay Equity Tools + Consulting Package includes: Oregon Pay Equity How-To Manual, Job Characteristics Profile System, Pay Equity Analysis Format, and 10-20 hours of consulting time depending on the number of jobs in the organization.
