     The revised Oregon Equal Pay Act is the most significant change to management of employee compensation in years.  Every employer (except federal government) in State of Oregon is required to comply. The standards are universal and require a significant amount of work to determine current compliance, evaluate pay practices and maintain compliance going forward. The revisions broaden existing protections, create new provisions to ensure internal equity in hiring decisions, require every employer to complete an analysis of each job against five characteristics, and complete a comparative analysis of total compensation for employees within groups of comparable character.  Some of this went into effect on October 8, 2017, however, the significant work comes in preparing for the January 1, 2019 implementation.    We will review the specific changes, the new obligations and discuss how to reach success in this very important area of compliance.
