Over the last few years, there has been an increasing number of initiatives by various interest groups to require extensive reporting by employers regarding the composition of their workforce by ethnic and gender categories, and also requirements that employers report on the compensation provided to their employees.

The general rationale stated for such proposals is that such reporting will result in greater diversity in the workplace and more equitable pay systems being implemented by employers. While such goals certainly have merit, virtually all of the reporting requirements result in increased regulatory costs being born by employers. A prime example is a pay data reporting rule adopted by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“Commission” or “EEOC”), that expanded the existing EEOC EEO-1 workforce composition reporting rule.

This live podcast will examine the reporting rule as well as recent actions by the Department of Justice in the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.
