In a guest column on Suits by Suits, a legal blog published by Zuckerman Spaeder LLP, NERA Vice President Dr. Elizabeth Newlon discusses the implications of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) proposal to expand its annual Employer Information Report (EEO-1) to include data on employees’ pay.
