Culhane Meadows’ Philadelphia partner Jo Bennett recently shared her insights on the “Hold On…Let Me Close My Door” podcast on the NYS Pay Transparency Law that went into effect September 17, with New York joining eight other states in requiring employers to disclose to job applicants how much a position pays.
Here is a brief description of Jo’s guest appearance:
Bennett addresses the pressing topic of “Why Pay Transparency? Why Now?”—providing listeners with actionable tips on how to navigate the evolving landscape of employment law, and diving into the history of an industry-wide wage gap.
“Every dollar that a man earns, a woman earns 83 cents according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics for 2021. That difference between men and women is greater for women of color with African American women typically earning 64 cents and women who are Hispanic at 54 cents. When we look at all of the groups in the workforce, women just make less than men. Some research from the Department of Labor has shown that when you drill down on industry, the wage gap still exists.” — Jo Bennett
