    by Georgia Adamson - April 19, 2018
    When you line up and go through job interviews, are you wasting your time? This is not an easy question for most of us to answer, although you might have an opinion based on your experience as a candidate (good or bad). Recently I came across an article indicating that companies themselves tend to place more emphasis on the value of in-person interviews than on objective assessment, even though it’s often not justifie...
  • Are Pay Secrecy Policies Another Necessary Casualty of the #MeToo Movement?
    by Connie Bertram, Emilie Adams - April 18, 2018
    Over the last several decades, pay secrecy policies have persisted – and even thrived – in the American workplace. Employees who are told not to discuss their compensation with their colleagues rarely question the legality of such a prohibition and, even if they did, are fearful of violating it for fear of losing their job. As a result, pay secrecy policies have long provided a critical advantage to employers during salary n...

  • OFCCP and the Rule of Law – Part IV: “Similarly Situated” Employees
    by Bill Doyle - April 18, 2018
    In the three prior articles in this series, we have evaluated OFCCP's recent regulatory and enforcement positions through the lenses of the fundamental and perennial question, 'What is Law?' Since our earlier articles, Secretary of Labor R. Alexander Acosta has continued to build his team at the Department of Labor (DOL). For example, the Senate recently confirmed Patrick Pizzella as Deputy Secretary of Labor. We expect...
  • State and Local Affirmative Action Requirements
    by Bill Osterndorf - April 18, 2018
    When we think about affirmative action in employment, the general tendency is to think about the federal affirmative action laws and regulations that are enforced by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP).

    by Melanie Whetzel - April 18, 2018
    In our increasingly fast-paced and stressful world, it seems we are called to accomplish more and more in less time. That may go for many of us in our employment situations as well.
