(January 2, 2012, Corporate Counsel - Compliance Supplement)
Gary Friedman, a partner in Weil’s national Employment Litigation Practice Group, was quoted at length on the affirmative steps that companies need to take to ensure compliance with the anti-discrimination laws in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling last year in Wal-Mart v. Dukes
Friedman notes, in particular, the need to lay out clear standards and guidelines to ensure that pay and promotion decisions are based on the right blend of objective and subjective performance factors. Furthermore, he states that companies must give proper training to managers and supervisors to ensure a thorough understanding of and adherence to antidiscrimination policies and procedures.
The article, “No Letup,” written by Susan Hansen, is featured in a special supplement to the January 2012 issue of Corporate Counsel
magazine entitled “Compliance”.
