U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s Pay Equity Workshop
Doug Kauffman, partner in the Birmingham office and member of the Labor & Employment Practice will serve as a panelist at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s Pay Equity Workshop on July 19, 2022. As the sole non-governmental attorney presenting at the event, Doug will join governmental attorneys to discuss current developments and future trends related to compensation discrimination and pay equity and what actions employers should take to meet these challenges.
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, transgender status, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information.
Doug helps employers manage their most valuable assets - their employees. For more than 25 years, he has counseled large and small employers, helping them stay up to date on the law, regulations, and best practices with respect to employment compliance. When issues arise in the workplace, Doug provides real-time solutions. He also handles complaints or audits by various government agencies, such as the EEOC, the Department of Labor, and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and he litigates all employment issues in court. Well respected on both sides of the table, Doug is frequently invited to speak at seminars sponsored by government agencies.
