Although pay equity litigation has been a prominent concern for employers for a long time, law firms have recently become the target of compensation litigation, either at the individual level, or as part of a class action.

As a result, law firms of all sizes are increasingly reviewing their hiring, promotion, and compensation practices to identify potential issues and, when necessary, make remedial adjustments and/or policy changes.  

The cornerstone of this investigation is a review of the firm’s human resources data and documentation. However, if the analysis is not conducted properly, the findings may be misleading, which will result in incorrect decisions made by the firm.

Objectives:

  1. Determine the best practices for a statistical analysis of a law firm’s data.
  2. Learn the best compliance strategies from a data standpoint.
  3. Enumerate practical tips for identifying and addressing potential issues.
