EEOC Proposes to Collect Wage Data from Large Employers


More productivity-sapping regulations proposed:  OMA Connections Partner, Dinsmore, reports that starting September 30, 2017, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) plans to collect pay data from employers with more than 100 employees in an attempt to reveal potentially discriminatory pay practices, particularly with respect to women and ethnic minorities.
