In an interesting move, the current administration appears to be rescinding the new rule on pay transparency that was rolled out during the Obama administration. We had blogged about that new rule here. The rule was to require employers with 100 or more employees to report certain wage and demographic data to the EEOC. From Newsweek:
"The White House, with the backing of Ivanka Trump, will end an Obama-era policy that would have required business owners to document how much they pay their workers alongside their gender, race and ethnicity. . . The Trump administration is scrapping the scheme, which was due to come into force in the spring this year, on the basis that it will be a burden to employers."
It is not surprising to see this rule rescinded under the current administration, and we will continue to follow other changes as they arise.
