LexisNexis Risk Solutions, the computer-assisted legal research service, will pay over $1.2 million to resolve systemic pay discrimination against women after the result of two OFCCP compliance reviews in the southeast region.
The company settled with OFCCP to resolve two separate compliance investigations located in Georgia and Florida, impacting 26 female employees in Operational Leadership jobs in Boca Raton, Florida, as well as 185 female employees in Operational Leadership jobs in an Alpharetta, Georgia review. The OFCCP press release alludes to using statistical analyses to control for legitimate factors prior to determining the females were paid less than their male counterparts. It is important to note that LexisNexis did not admit liability, but did agree to pay the $1.2 million in back pay and interest, $45,000 in salary adjustments, and also agreed to monitoring compensation practices that could impact women.
