Equal Pay: Non-U.S. Regulations and Complexities

Erica Schohn Helena J. Derbyshire

On November 1, Skadden presented “Equal Pay: Non-U.S. Regulations and Complexities,” the third of several webinars focused on pay equality. Panelists discussed recently passed and pending legislation around the globe involving gender pay equality and related disclosure rules, including lessons learned from the adoption of gender pay gap reporting rules in the U.K. The panel also examined how local laws and practices — and the likelihood of potential litigation — impact discussions at multinational companies, as well as decisions on whether and how to conduct and disclose pay audits.

Panelists included Erica Schohn, executive compensation and benefits partner at Skadden, and Helena Derbyshire, labor and employment of counsel at Skadden. Regional contributors included Rubén Agote Eguizábal, partner at Cuatrecasas (Spain); Nadine Mather, senior associate at Bowmans (South Africa); Domingos Antonio Fortunato Netto, partner at Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr e Quiroga Advogados (Brazil); and Nina Rabaeus, associate at Homburger (Switzerland).

Ms. Schohn, global executive compensation and benefits head Regina Olshan, and global labor and employment head David Schwartz are organizers of the webinars. Future programs include “Practical Approaches to Gender Pay Audits” on December 6.
