Stephanie R. Thomas, “Compensating Your Employees Fairly: A Guide to Internal Pay Equity”

English | ISBN: 1430250402 | 2013 | EPUB | 308 pages | 7 MB

Compensation fairness is a universal preoccupation in today’s workplace, from whispers around the water cooler to kabuki in the C-suite. Gender discrimination takes center stage in discussions of internal pay equity, but many other protected characteristics may be invoked as grounds for alleging discrimination: age, race, disability, physical appearance, and more. This broad range of vulnerability to discrimination charges is often neglected in corporate assessments of how well compensation systems comply with the law and satisfy employee norms of fairness. Blind spots in general equity constitute a serious threat to organizational performance and risk management. In Compensating Your Employees Fairly, a respected practitioner and consultant lays out in practical terms everything you need to know to protect your company along the full spectrum of internal pay equity issues, including all the technical methods you need to optimize compliance and minimize risk.
Compensating Your Employees Fairly is a timely survey and comprehensive handbook for compensation specialists, HR professionals, EEO compliance officers, and in-house counsel. It provides all the information you need to ensure that compensation systems are equitable, auditable, internally consistent, and externally compliant with equal employment opportunity laws and regulations. The author presents technical information—both legal and statistical—in common-sense terms. Her non-technical breakdown of complex statistical concepts distills just as much as practitioners need to know in order to effectively deploy and interpret the standard applications of statistical analysis to internal pay equity. The focus throughout the book is on real-world application, current examples, and up-to-the-minute information on recent and pending wrinkles in the evolving legal landscape.
Readers of Compensating Your Employees Fairly will learn:
Why internal equity in compensation matters
How to detect intentional and non-intentional discrimination in compensation
The basics of statistical inference and multiple regression analysis
The essentials of data availability, measurability, and collection
The criteria for assessing compensation systems for internal equity
How to investigate potential problems and react to formal complaints and actions
How to avoid litigation and put in place ongoing measures for proactive self-auditing

Jürgen Schmieder, “Mit einem Bein im Knast: Mein Versuch, ein Jahr lang gesetzestreu zu leben”

2013 | ISBN: 3570101444 | 368 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Kaum aufgewacht – schon straffällig: unsere alltäglichen Rechtsbrüche und Gesetzesverstöße
Wir alle sind Verbrecher. Wir fahren zu schnell, wir stehlen Handtücher aus Hotels, wir betrügen bei der Steuererklärung, wir saugen Filme aus dem Internet. Doch zugeben würden wir es nie. Dabei beläuft sich der volkswirtschaftliche Schaden solcher Untaten auf mehr als eine Billion Euro pro Jahr. Wie wäre es, wenn man ein Jahr lang jeden Tag 24 Stunden von einem Polizisten begleitet würde? Jürgen Schmieder hat es gewagt. Er versucht, ein Jahr lang gesetzeskonform zu leben, im Einklang mit unseren mehr als 100 000 Gesetzen und Verordnungen. Ein schwieriges Unterfangen, wo ihn doch schon deren Lektüre schier in den Wahnsinn treibt. Er sieht sich gezwungen, seine Frau anzuzeigen, verfolgt einen russischen Milliardär, bekommt sogar eine Todesdrohung … Am Ende steht die Erkenntnis, dass es viel zu viele Gesetze gibt, aber kaum jemand dafür sorgt, dass die wirklich wichtigen eingehalten werden.
