    The Massachusetts Pay Equity law goes into effect in July of 2018. It’s critical that employers in the state understand the parameters of the law and the practical applications of how to be compliant. John will review the legal aspects of compliance and Patti will discuss compensation strategies that will help you align positions and salaries to be compliant and effective in your organization.
