Pay Equity Audits

Pay equity is governed by a variety of complex laws that create a substantial amount of risk. When employers want to manage their risk exposure and ensure their employees are being paid equitably, they turn to CRA. For more than 20 years, we have helped HR leaders and legal counsel develop strategies, processes, and controls tailored to their pay practices.

Why CRA?

CRA has experience in a wide range of industries, and our work has withstood the scrutiny of both local and federal agencies. We have helped employers assess and actively manage/mitigate risk under many different laws, uncover potential inequities, and to develop a strategy to fix inequities.

Our consultants combine deep expertise in each phase of the pay equity audit process with cutting edge analytics and in-depth regulatory knowledge to deliver clear answers and concrete action plans.
