Female special education teachers and school psychologists are paid less than their male colleagues, federal agency fee

CHICAGO — The Verona Area School District (VASD), which serves Verona and parts of Fitchburg and Madison, Wisconsin, violated federal law by paying female special education teachers and a school psychologist lower wages than male employees doing the same job, the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charged in a lawsuit she filed today.

According to the EEOC lawsuit, since the 2019-20 school year, VASD has paid nine female specialist teachers salaries lower than those of a specialist teacher. All nine have comparable (or better) experience than their male colleague, but have earned between $3,000 and $17,000 less than him. The EEOC also alleged that a female school psychologist was paid less than a male school psychologist, earning at least $16,000 less per year than since the 2017-18 school year.

Such alleged conduct violates the Equal Pay Act (EPA), which prohibits discrimination based on sex. The EEOC filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin (EEOC v. Verona Area School District, Case #3: 22-cv-00039) after first attempting to reach a pre-litigation settlement through its conciliation process. The EEOC’s litigation effort will be led by trial attorneys Ann Henry and Elizabeth Banaszak and supervising trial attorney Justin Mulaire.

“Addressing wage discrimination remains a priority for the EEOC,” said Julianne Bowman, district manager of the EEOC’s Chicago office. “Nearly 60 years after the Equal Pay Act was enacted, we continue to see that there is still work to be done to achieve the Act’s mandate of equal pay for equal work.”

Gregory Gochanour, regional attorney for the Chicago District Office of the EEOC, added: “For female employees to have the same or more experience and be paid so much less than their male colleagues to do the same work is unfair and illegal. , and that’s why we’ve sued to right this wrong.

The EEOC is seeking back wages, damages, the elimination of wage disparities, and other injunctive relief to correct and prevent future wage discrimination.

For more information on equal pay and pay discrimination, please see https://www.eeoc.gov/equal-paycompensation-discrimination.

The Chicago District Office of the EEOC is responsible for handling employment discrimination charges, administrative enforcement, and the conduct of agency litigation in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and North and South Dakota, with regional offices in Milwaukee and Minneapolis.

The EEOC advances opportunity in the workplace by enforcing federal laws prohibiting discrimination in employment. More information is available at www.eeoc.gov.

United States: States limit employer’s power to demand the blow

To print this article, all you need to do is be registered or log in to Mondaq.com.

With OSHA’s COVID vaccination mandate now upheld (almost certainly forever) and the vaccination mandate for government contractors also upheld (likely forever), US employers must decide whether or not to impose their own COVID vaccination mandates to employees. And state laws will have something to say about it.

The table below summarizes current state laws that restrict a private sector employer’s ability to impose a COVID vaccination mandate on their employees. In almost all cases, these state restrictions go beyond the federal requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Title VII that employers reasonably accommodate the disability or an honest religious belief in disability. absence of undue hardship.

Other states may add their own restrictions in the coming weeks and months.

State Summary of Vaccination Exemption Quote
Alabama Emergencies cannot require EE to be vaccinated as a condition of employment without allowing EE to claim religious and medical reasons. Eligibility for the exemption must be “liberally construed”. EE’s submission of the Universal Application Form (available here) creates a presumption that the EE is eligible for the exemption. Law 2021-561
Arizona If an ER has received notice from EE that EE’s sincere religious beliefs preclude him or her from taking the vaccine, ER must provide reasonable accommodation unless the accommodation would pose undue hardship and more than a cost of minimis for RE. ARS § 23-206
Arkansas Emergencies must allow EEs to opt out of vaccine requirements if they are tested weekly or can prove they have antibodies to the virus. AAC § 11-5-118
Florida

ER cannot impose a vaccination mandate unless EE can opt out based on:

  1. Medical reasons, as determined by a physician, Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN), or Physician Assistant (PA). Medical reasons include pregnancy or expectation of pregnancy.
  2. Religious reasons, based on sincere belief
  3. Immunity based on prior COVID-19 infection, documented by laboratory test
  4. Periodic testing, agreeing to comply with regular testing at no cost to the employee
  5. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), agreeing to comply with the use of PPE provided by the employer
FSA § 381.00317
Illinois Illinois law prohibits ERs from discriminating against EEs who object to health care services because of their personal conscience. Under this law, Illinois courts have barred the enforcement of ER vaccination warrants against EEs with conscientious objection. Illinois recently passed SB 1169, which amends the law to clarify that it does not apply to ER vaccine warrants. The amendment is not effective until June 1, 2022. Thus, emergencies should proceed with caution until June 1, 2022.

745 ILCS 70/7

SB 1169

Iowa ER will waive any requirement for a vaccine if the EE submits to ER: (1) a statement that receiving a vaccine would be detrimental to the health and well-being of the EE, or (2) a statement that receiving the vaccine would be contrary to the principles and practices of a religion of which the employee is an adherent or member. ICA § 94.2
Kansas

If ER implements the vaccine requirement, ER shall exempt EE if EE submits a written statement that such a requirement:

  1. Endanger the life of EE, as signed by the doctor
  2. Violate EE’s sincere religious beliefs, as signed by EE.

Labor markets in Midland and Odessa showed a significant recovery from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic at the end of 2021.

The Texas Workforce Commission said Friday that unemployment in its Midland Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) — which includes Midland and Martin counties — fell to 4.1% in December from 4.4% in November. The rate is well below the 8% posted in December 2020.

Odessa showed similar improvement, falling to 5.9% from 6.3% in November and well below the 11.6% recorded in Odessa in December 2020.


“We are moving in the right direction,” said Willie Taylor, general manager of Workforce Solutions Permian Basin of the commission. “We are definitely making progress.

Speaking to the Reporter-Telegram by phone, Taylor estimated first jobless claims fell to about 979 in the 17 West Texas counties his office serves.

With an unemployment rate of 4.1%, he said Midland was considered to have full employment and he said it appeared to be a job seekers market. Taylor said her office has funds to help those who want to find jobs but need help with childcare. And he urged people looking for a job or looking for a better job to take advantage of training opportunities at local colleges.

With such a tight job market, not just locally, but statewide — even nationally — Taylor predicted he would be competitive “statewide.”

“As we navigate through this virus, the region is doing well,” Taylor concluded.

According to the Workforce Commission, Midland had a civilian workforce of 101,007, down slightly from 101,125 in November, but more than 2,200 up from 98,752 in December 2020. Still, Taylor pointed out that’s below the 108,000 Midland was seeing before the pandemic and he said it will take time to get back to those levels.

The number of employees increased by about 200 to 96,819 from 96,628. This is 6,000 more than the 90,805 employees the previous December. There were 4,188 unemployed Midlanders in December, 300 less than the 4,497 in November and 3,700 less than the 7,950 unemployed last December.

Midland added 300 jobs from November to December for a non-farm payroll of 100,700. The gain was led by the trade, transportation and utilities sector with 200 new jobs. The mining, logging and construction sectors as well as education and health services each created 100 jobs. The public sector was the only sector to lose jobs, down 100 jobs for the month.

For the 12 months from December 2020 to December 2021, Midland added 6,200 jobs for a job growth rate of 6.6%. Midland’s dominant industrial sector, mining, logging and construction – which includes the oil and gas industry – dominated with the addition of 3,400 new jobs. The leisure and hospitality sector follows with 2,300 new jobs. Commerce, transport and public services added 600 new jobs. The financial activities sector added 300 jobs, followed by the manufacturing sector with 200 new jobs and the other services sector with the addition of 100 jobs.

The government sector recorded the largest job loss during the year, losing 400 jobs. Education and health services lost 200 jobs and professional and business services lost 100 jobs.

Statewide, the unemployment rate fell to 5% from 5.2% in November. Texas recorded a record employment level for a second consecutive month at 13,059,600 jobs. The state created 50,000 jobs in December, adding jobs in 19 of the past 20 months.

Amarillo and Austin-Round Rock each reported the lowest unemployment rate in the state at 2.9% each, followed by College Station-Bryan at 3.2% and Abilene and Lubbock at 3.3 % each. McAllen-Edinburg-Mission recorded the highest unemployment rate at 7.8%.

United States: COVID Labor Shortages: Here Comes the Cavalry!

To print this article, all you need to do is be registered or log in to Mondaq.com.

Like most businesses, you probably urgently need qualified and motivated employees. One often overlooked source is transitioning military and veterans. These men and women are truly special because they understand commitment, teamwork and dedication, they come from all walks of life and are a diverse labor pool, especially when it comes to race, sexual orientation and gender to name a few categories. . Veterans tend to have high retention rates (eg, lower turnover) and bring considerable leadership qualities to the workforce.

In addition to the non-monetary benefits, there are also substantial monetary benefits associated with hiring transitioning military and veterans. Here are summaries of some programs that may be of interest to you:

1. DoD SkillBridge Program. The United States Department of Defense runs an internship program that allows current military personnel of any rank who are in their last 180 days of military service to work for a civilian company. The US DoD pays the service member’s salary and benefits while the service member participates in SkillBridge. You pay nothing! The only requirements are that the “internship” must include an interview and offer a high probability of continued employment. Click here for more information.

2. Military recruiters. To facilitate an employer’s ability to attract the types of applicants who might be a good fit for your company, nonprofits work with the Department of Labor to help companies attract veterans. For example, the HireMilitary organization helps attract specialized types of employees (eg, cybersecurity, IT). Another non-profit organization, Hiring Our Heroes, focuses primarily on placing entry-level candidates.

3. Apprenticeship program. Another potential opportunity for employers is to register and be approved for an apprenticeship program recognized by VA and the Department of Labor. Once approved, an employee can use their GI Bill benefits. This program results in a nationally recognized degree and may make it easier for the company to attract others interested in the skilled trades.

4. Special Employer Incentive Program (SEI). Administered by the Department of Labor and VA, this program provides employers who hire veterans with service-related disabilities who are approved for vocational rehabilitation and employment services reimbursement of up to 50 percent of the veteran’s salary. veteran for 6 months to offset training costs. . see here for more.

5. Work Opportunity Tax Credit. The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a federal tax credit available to employers who hire veterans and individuals from other eligible target groups who experience significant barriers to employment. Veterans who are qualified include the following:

  • Veterans with a family member receiving assistance under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) (food stamps). This family member must participate in the program for at least three months during the veteran’s first year of employment.
  • Veterans who have been unemployed for at least four weeks but less than six months during the one-year period prior to their date of hire.
  • Veterans who have been unemployed for at least six months during the one-year period prior to their date of hire.
  • A disabled veteran entitled to compensation for a service-related disability who is hired no more than one year after being discharged or released from active duty.
  • A disabled veteran entitled to compensation for a service-related disability who is unemployed for at least six months during the one-year period prior to his date of hire.
  • Veterans who fall into more than one category could give employers more tax breaks.

The WOTC can reduce an employer’s federal income tax by up to $9,600 per veteran hired. This is the maximum tax credit if the veteran has service-related disabilities and is hired within one year of discharge from the military. A similar credit is available to employers who hire a disabled veteran who received unemployment compensation for more than six months. There is no limit to the number of eligible employees a business can hire and receive credits. For example, the employer can hire ten veterans with service-related disabilities who have been unemployed for at least six months and receive credits of almost $100,000.

The labor market seems ideal for those who need a job



TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – What was once one of Terre Haute’s largest employers is set to cut 100 employees this year. We told you before it’s at Sony in Terre Haute.

Sony DADC will leave many people on the job search path. It comes after the company laid off 100 employees. But an economist says they will have no problem finding their next job. Economists say the labor market looks good for manufacturing. ISU’s Dr. Robert Guell says Sony DADC’s main focus has been on the hard drive which is now a thing of the past, especially with streaming services like Hulu and Netflix.

“There’s very little demand for physical media anymore, and that’s what this factory has done. So over the last decade, we’ve seen one of the most large employers in Terre Haute.”

Dr. Guell adds that there are plenty of places that are hiring for those who will be laid off from Sony. He adds, however, that their paychecks may not look the same.

“Now you’re not going to do what you did or do what you did, but this is one of the best times in Terre Haute history to be unemployed.”

He says last year; people were paid much more for unemployment. This is no longer the case.

“One of the things they need to remember, though, is that the Enhanced Federal Unemployment Supplement no longer exists. So unemployment compensation checks are capped in Indiana at just under $400 per week.”

He says, of course, that no one ever wants to be fired, but people who are should look to the future with promise.

“Right now there is a very high demand in a very limited supply of workers, so if you are ready to work and you are not planning to retire, now is the best time.”

Also, if you’re looking for a job, a good place to start is some of the area’s hiring services, such as Labor Link, Workforce One, and Resource MFG.

United States: EEOC tentatively sets dramatically shortened 2021 EEO-1 filing season

The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently
job information on the EEO-1 landing page indicating that the 2021 EEO-1 filing platform is scheduled to open on April 12, 2022, with the filing deadline tentatively set for May 17, 2022. This filing period is approximately four weeks is considerably shorter than expected for recent EEO-1 filing periods. For example, the EEO-1 2017 filing period open January 24, 2018, with an initial deadline of March 31, 2018, while the 2018 EEO-1 filing cycle open on March 31, 2019 and had an original deadline of May 31, 2019. For the most recent EEO-1 filing cycle, which covered filings for 2019 and 2020, the filing platform opened on April 26, 2021 and had a first the filing deadline of July 19, 2021, which has been extended several times until a final deadline of October 25, 2021, has been set. Looking at recent EEO-1 filing periods in which single year reports were collected, one would have expected a filing period of around eight weeks for the 2021 EEO-1 data collection, but the EEOC appears to be ready to collect all 2021 EEOs. -1 reports in about four weeks.

While the EEOC recently extended the EEO-1 filing deadlines, the agency’s setting this short collection period for EEO-1 reports 2021 represents a major change that could put even more pressure on employers who have been forced to deal with a difficult EEO. 1 filing cycle in 2021 which lasted until the end of last year. Last year’s EEO-1 deposition cycle was difficult for a number of reasons: the implementation of a new depot platform; the paper sending of new connection information; a long delay in the processing of merger, acquisition and demerger requests leading to a modification of this process at the end of the filing cycle; and the challenges of coping with many business and staff transitions over the two years affected by the pandemic.

Another factor that can make the EEO-1 2021 filing cycle difficult is the need to complete the reconciliation process for 2019 and 2020 mergers, acquisitions and spinoffs that were not processed in 2021. Another change for 2021 is that employers who previously used the streamlined Type 6 reports preferred by large employers will now be forced to use the more data-intensive Type 8 reports for establishments with less than 50 employees. The EEOC provided an information sheet, titled “EEO-1 Component 1 Fact Sheet: Types of Reports“, discussing the Type 6 report shutdown as well as the EEO-1 report types available for 2021 filings. Although it is hoped that many of the new EEO-1 depot platform issues will have been resolved for the EEO 2021 -1 filings, the EEOC’s interim decision to set such a short filing period suggests that this year’s EEO-1 filing cycle will remain difficult. -1 comes as many employers gear up for a seemingly year-round set of compliance filings including not only EEO-1s but also California 2021 salary data reports due March 31, 2022, VETS reports -4,212,2022 due September 30, 2022, and work on new state filing obligations, such as Employers who file EEO-1 reports may find it prudent to have their EEO-1 data ready and wait once the depot platform Not opened in anticipation of the potentially shortened deposit window.
