Valentín Estévez, Ph.D., Managing Director, and Catherine Massey, Ph.D., Senior Economist, will speak at the WorldatWork Total Resilience Virtual Conference & Exhibition on September 2, at 12:00 to 12:45 PM EST. They will present the session Deliberate and Transparent Actions to Avoid Adverse Impact Claims.

HR professionals throughout the country are tasked with helping their organizations navigate the “new normal” during a recessionary economy.  Women and minorities stand to be disproportionately affected by the pandemic as they make up a larger share of industries facing layoffs and wage reductions. Valentín and Catherine will discuss tactics employers can take to identify and minimize adverse impact claims and maintain and improve pay equity, such as evaluating and documenting workforce adjustments, conducting pay audits to identify and investigate pay gaps, and adapt hiring practices to the current labor market.
