Money at Work -- the Gender Pay Gap: Effective Strategies in the #MeToo Era (04/30/2020)

Program Number: 3076 Presenter: Kathleen Caminiti, Esq., Cheryl Pinarchick, Esq.

The topic of harassment, and sexual harassment in particular, has become an increasing concern for employers – not only in regard to their own personal behavior but also regarding the overall reputation of their organization as a harassment-free workplace. The #MeToo movement has heightened awareness of gender and power issues. However, an unintended consequence of the #MeToo movement had been risk of segregation of women professionals, a phenomenon that ultimately can lead to the denial of advancement opportunities and pay disparity. The purpose of this webinar is to educate employers about the existence of discriminatory compensation practices in the workplace and to think strategically about legal compliance and pay equality. We will explore the ramifications of gender segregation in the #MeToo era, provide an overview of current pay equity laws, and offer practical advice on how to identify and address implicit bias that can lead to potential gender discrimination and pay

Who Is a Subcontractor Under a Federal Government Contract? (02/25/2020)

Program Number: 3045 Presenter: Merle DeLancy, Jr., Esq., Michael J. Montalbano, Esq.

Recently, clients have asked if they or a vendor or supplier are a “subcontractor” under a federal government contract. Sometimes the answer is easy—e.g., you are a subcontractor when a prime contractor contracts directly with a vendor or supplier (hereinafter “vendor”) to perform a federal contract. But the lines become less clear when a prime contractor does not inform the vendor that the subcontract is being entered into in furtherance of a federal government contract or where the vendor supplies goods that the prime contractor uses to perform commercial and government contracts. Join Merle DeLancey and Michael Montalbano as they dig further into this topic.
