A pay equity webinar to help you compile, check and submit your California wage data while complying with regulations and avoiding regulatory review

Repeat Webinar: California’s New Wage Reporting Requirement:
How to Prepare Now to Avoid Becoming a Litigation Target

Tuesday, March 23, 2021 at 2:00 PM EDT 

If you are a California employer with more than 99 employees, you are required to file the California SB 973 Wage report by March 31, 2021. The headcount and wage effects of your COVID-19 restructuring will be reflected in your SB 973 filed in California.

You can gain a huge advantage by finding and potentially mitigating any issues before the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) or private litigants inform you or your C-Suite of problems. Your findings will also help position your firm to respond to a potential EEOC inquiry. If you want to make changes for your 2021 pay process, the results can be used to inform that process.

Before you file, consider a few things:

  1. How should you review data and in what format should you report?
  2. What data checks can you perform to reduce the chance of job misclassifications?
  3. How can you test your data to identify simple data errors that could be very harmful?
  4. How can you determine which pay-period to use to select your reported population?

We will also show you some ways to handle your data and identify problems through statistical testing that will help you get through the SB 973 filing process with less effort and fewer problems.

Who Should Attend: HR Professionals or Attorneys helping companies with California employees, knowing that the SB 972 filing is only about two months away. We will discuss tests, tools and resources that you can use.

Advanced Analytical Consulting Group’s (AACG) labor litigation experts will discuss useful ways to review your data for errors, some simple steps to make filing easier and how you can test your data for statistically significant discrimination using software like EquityTest.

This webinar will cover the following topics:

  1. Overview of differences between EEO-1 Component 2 and California DFEH Component 2 data requirements.
  2. How you can review your draft DFEH filing to identify potential errors and inform your choice of pay period
  3. How you can use statistical tests on your individual-level, draft compensation data to identify potential discrimination and determine the damages you face
  4. How you can get help converting your individual employee-level data into the DFEH Component 2 CSV format ready for electronic submission to the California DFEH

EEOC previously defined potential tests for its EEO-1 Component 2 wage testing and those tests can be implemented for the California filing, allowing you to fix problems before you file your headcount and wage data.
