Posted on September 11, 2019 Issues: Equal Pay & the Wage Gap Equal Pay Laws Measuring the Wage Gap

(Washington, D.C.) Below is a statement from Fatima Goss Graves, President & CEO of the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) regarding the Equal Employment Opportunity’s (EEOC) new proposal to stop the EEO-1 pay data collection after the court-required collections of data from 2017 and 2018:

“The Trump administration made it clear today that, if it were not for NWLC winning its pay data collection lawsuit, it would simply allow employers to continue to hide their wage gaps by gender, ethnicity and race. This is outrageous. We now know that Trump’s newly constituted EEOC leadership is planning to abandon its own mission to ensure equality, including equal pay, in the workplace. We won’t allow it.”
