Despite the calls for equality, the gender wage gap still persists today. Despite individual company efforts in closing the gap, it is still an issue that needs to be unanimously addressed in order to make sure that all employees get the just compensation that they deserve. This means that color, age, and gender should play no role in the compensation package that an employee is to receive. And Sarah Nichols, Founder and Managing Lawyer of Nichols Law, PC has made it her duty to help close the wage gap and protect women from discrimination in their workplace.
In this episode of The Women’s Advocate podcast, host Sarah Nichols gets interviewed by John Corcoran of Rise25 about the existing wage gap and the steps necessary for equal pay to happen. Sarah delves into current laws on wages and how employers often work around them, and she also expounds on implicit bias, women on maternity leave, and the lack of transparency in the business world when it comes to wages. Stay tuned.
