L&I will kick off later this month a series of webinars that will provide participants information on the Equal Pay and Opportunities Act.
The act, which took effect June 7, 2018, prohibits gender pay discrimination and promotes fairness among workers by addressing business practices that contribute to income disparities between genders.
The 60-minute webinar will be presented by the equal pay specialist from L&I’s Employment Standards program, and includes the opportunity to ask questions. The session will cover an overview of the law, employee and job applicant’s protections under the law, L&I’s enforcement and investigation process and employer resources.
Session dates offered:
- Sept. 15 from 9-10 a.m.
- Oct. 29 from 9-10 a.m.
- Nov. 19 from 9-10 a.m.
To register for a session, go to L&I’s calendar of workshops, events and webinars, and look for “Equal Pay and Opportunities Act (Webinar)” in the “Event Title” pull-down menu, then click on the “Sign Up” button.
Once registration is complete, participants will receive information on how to access the webinar. L&I will also provide instructions on how to use Zoom at the beginning of the webinar.
If these dates and times do not fit your schedule, send an email to esgeneral@Lni.wa.gov. The program will work to schedule a webinar or consultation for you or your organization.
