Groups sue over decision to end Obama-era pay data collection rule

The Lawyers’ Committee and NWLC are now asking a judge to force the OMB to hand over documents related to its “sudden and largely unexplained decision.” “A dearth of comparative salary and wage information may contribute to the persistence of race and gender pay gaps, and limit attempts to remedy them,” the groups said in their suit. “As a result, employees face significant obstacles in gathering the information that would indicate they have experienced pay discrimination, which undermines their ability to challenge such discrimination.”
